Greetings,

 

Occasionally we find grant opportunities that may be of interest to members of this list.  Here is one that was recently released by the Oregon Youth Development Council

________________________

The Youth & Innovation Grant is a community-based grant designed to assist existing efforts in improving education and workforce success for youth who are disconnected from the education system and labor market. The target population of the Youth & Innovation: Entrepreneurship and Career Readiness Grant is Opportunity Youth – young people ages 16-24 who are disconnected from the education system and the labor market.

 

The Oregon Youth Development Council (YDC) identified additional funding that could be utilized during the current biennium to support services for youth, and determined that these funds should be distributed to projects that facilitate Opportunity Youth career readiness and skill building.

 

To this end, the YDC is issuing a Request for Applications for a Youth & Innovation: Entrepreneurship and Career Readiness Grant to support innovative training projects for Opportunity Youth.

 

Information about the grant can be found at http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=5524 .  For questions,  please contact Cord Bueker Jr. at cord.bueker@state.or.us.  All questions will be added regularly to the Frequently Asked Questions page, available at this link: https://sites.google.com/a/oregonlearning.org/ydd/.
