Foundation / Corporation
Humanities Council of Washington, DC (HCWDC)
Grants of up to $10,000 to Washington, DC nonprofit organizations for humanities programs designed for youth. Funding is intended for programs that use humanities ideas to help youth better understand themselves and the human experience. The goal of the program is to provide tools to encourage youth to improve themselves and the world in which they live, and to produce confident, service-oriented leaders with increased communications and critical thinking skills.
This youth program grant is awarded to organizations providing humanities programs for youth ages 14-19 in the District of Columbia, based on the Humanities Council’s successful Soul of the City (SOTC) Program. HCWDC has presented SOTC for almost a decade to hundreds of young people. It emphasizes one of the Council’s core beliefs that effective leadership can be cultivated through a curriculum that combines humanities concepts with skill building. SOTC encourages young people to view their city, their country and their world in new ways and prepares them for leadership.
