 Phoenix Youth Commission Has Grants Available for Youth Projects

The Phoenix Youth and Education Commission is accepting applications from local schools for the 2006 Focus on Results (FOR) Youth Grants.

Grants up to $12,000 are available for projects or activities that occur between July 1, 2006, and June 30, 2007.

This year, $90,000 will be available for grants through the Phoenix Youth and Education Commission to fund recommendations from the Phoenix Youth Town Hall. The goal of the FOR Youth Grants program is to create new or support existing activities that promote teen involvement in the community.

Applicants must represent a middle or high school (public, charter or private) that serves grades 7 – 12. The school must be located in Phoenix or have more than 50 percent of the student attendance from within the Phoenix city limits. Applications must be postmarked or submitted electronically by Sept. 1.

A panel of youth and adults from the Youth and Education Commission will review the grants. The panel will review each application and evaluate proposals based on project quality; active involvement of students; staff qualifications, commitment and ability to execute the project; commitment to diversity; impact on the student body; and representation of all students on campus.
