Grants of up to $4,000 will be awarded in Massachusetts to non profit organizations for programming that develops residents' professional skills thereby improving their opportunities for success in the workforce. The foundation's goal is to shift the unemployed/underemployed into stable professional positions.

The Youth Grantmaking team seeks to increase access and expand opportunities for individuals 18 and older in programs offering job training, language learning, and general job-search support. Mini-grants are intended to strengthen and enhance existing programming or to pilot new approaches and ideas. Applicants who address the following priorities are encouraged to apply:
1) High quality educational programs that support low-income Brookline residents seeking employment.
2) High quality career counseling and preparation programs for low-income Brookline residents.
3) Internships/job placement programs for low-income Brookline residents.
4) Stipends for short-term internships that provide skill-building opportunities.
