U.S. Department of Labor’s YouthBuild
The purpose of this program is to fund organizations to provide a pre-apprenticeship program model that encompasses education, occupational skills training, leadership development, and high-quality post-program placement opportunities to opportunity youth. YouthBuild is a community-based alternative education program for youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who left high school prior to graduation that also have other risk factors, including being an adjudicated youth, youth aging out of foster care, youth with disabilities, migrant farmworker youth, youth experiencing housing instability, and other disadvantaged youth populations. The YouthBuild program simultaneously addresses multiple core issues important to youth in low-income communities: affordable housing, leadership development, education, and employment opportunities in in-demand industries and apprenticeship pathways.

JAMS Foundation & Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR)’s Initiative for Students and Youth
The JAMS Foundation/ACR Initiative for Students and Youth provides grant funding for conflict prevention and dispute resolution programs for K-12 students and for adults working with youth populations in ways that directly transfer conflict resolution education skills from adults to youth. This funding identifies specific subject areas seeking to address otherwise unresolved issues and unmet needs of both general and target youth populations, based on current research and feedback from leaders and stakeholders in the dispute resolution and education fields. The 2022 Funding Track will continue and expand the 2021 Funding Focus on conflict resolution education and training for youth to create opportunities to prevent and manage conflict in the following settings:

  • Domestic violence shelters
  • Homeless shelters
  • Foster care
  • Youth correctional facilities
  • School or after-school programs
