We are pleased to announce the 11 nonprofit organizations that will partner with us for the first Brooklyn Youth Fellowship. These organizations will identify the 20 youth fellows in our inaugural cohort, to commence in June.
Many thanks to the broad range of organizations and community groups that applied for our Brooklyn Youth Fellowship and Incubator Project this winter!
As an initial project under our new Invest in Youth program, the Foundation is launching the Brooklyn Youth Fellowship. We are currently seeking nonprofits to apply to host 2-4 fellows between the ages of 16-24 for 10 months. Selected nonprofits will receive $2,500 in operating support per fellow, plus a $5,000 stipend for each fellow. In 2015, we will provide awards for up to 20 fellows and 5-10 nonprofit partners.
We are pleased to announce the official launch of the Brooklyn Accelerator, a unique component of our new community impact strategy designed to be a hub of information, idea exchange, and gathering of philanthropic resources across the borough.
