Grants of up to $750 to California youth-led teams (ages 10-19 years old) sponsored by a nonprofit organization or school in the counties of Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, or El Dorado. Funding is intended to inspire youth about equity-related causes in their community and encourage a commitment to giving, serving, and taking action.

Proposed projects should:

- Involve youth in meaningful leadership and decision-making roles, so that they are regarded as resources, not just recipients of services
- Develop youth’s problem solving, planning, and other life skills to prepare them to take on adult roles and responsibilities
- Connect youth to their own communities so that they can become knowledgeable and contribute to their own communities
- Promote interaction and cooperation among youth and between youth and adults
- Impact youth in the community, not just the project planner
- Respond to the theme of "Youth Promoting Equity in the Community"

GABY will make grants up to $750. A grant request for the full amount of $750 will need to be very specific regarding the results of the grant and the cost.

Your project must be completed by April 20, 2018.

The youth team must be sponsored by a nonprofit organization or school to accept grant funds. An agency sponsor is an organization that is legally recognized as a charity with 501c3 certification from the government.

The project must take place in one of the following counties: Sacramento, Yolo, Placer or El Dorado.
