Donate to a Sponsored Project

The mission of the Innovation Center for Community and Youth Development is to unleash the potential of youth, adults, organizations, and communities to engage together in creating a just and equitable society.

To this end, the Innovation Center equips community-based organizations with the skills, tools, and values to engage young people as equal partners in social change and networks them with peers, funders, and academics. Through our trust-based network of community partners, we discover and document how innovative nonprofits are more effectively engaging marginalized youth to promote community development and environmental sustainability. We analyze and refine those experiences for broader audiences, distill lessons, create practical training materials, and apply them to build organizational and community capacity.

Your generous donation will allow the Innovation Center to continue to provide free downloadable training materials, program resources, toolkits and resources to youth workers and young leaders across the globe who are striving to make their communities a just and sustainable place.
