Grants ranging from $500 to $10,000 to Yolo County, California nonprofit organizations for youth leadership programs in the City of Davis. Organizations will provide innovative opportunities for teens (ages 12-18) to receive leadership skills development and mentorship.

The City of Davis Teen Services Grant Program allocates funding to a wide variety of programs and services that promote, support, and assist local community organizations in providing creative opportunities for teens to receive mentorship and leadership skills that are founded upon the framework of the Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets for youth 12 to 18 years of age. This framework, first introduced in 1990, is based on extensive research in the areas of positive youth development, prevention and resiliency.

Applications will be evaluated based upon the applicant’s compliance with the Teen Service Grant criteria and guidelines, the overall quality of the proposed program or service and its correlation to the 40 Developmental Assets, the application’s completeness, the proposed project’s feasibility, and the benefit to the designated teen population and community.
