Grants of up to $16,500 to Seattle, Washington arts, cultural, and community organizations to provide programming that links arts learning and work training experiences for local youth (ages 12-18). The mandatory information session will be held on March 5.

Selected projects will serve 8 - 15 youth who have been recruited through the SYVPI program. Projects may apply for funding up to $16,500 to cover up to 100 hours of instruction time for youth and project costs (including youth stipends.) Projects with fewer than 100 hours of contact time may apply for a pro-rated funding amount.

The Office seeks youth group projects that strongly link arts learning with development of interpersonal and leadership skills, and 21st century skills designed to boost academic, vocational and workplace success. Group project supervisors, SYVPI Neighborhood Network staff and staff from the Office will work together to ensure that participants learn both specific arts skills and the value of appropriate workplace behavior.
