Youth INC’s Board Advancement Program is devoted to raising the profile and performance of nonprofit organizations’ Boards of Directors. The 15-month program employs custom-tailored assessments, immersive consulting, and mentorship from board development professionals to strengthen their abilities as a nonprofit.
Since 2008, Youth INC has awarded more than 47 capacity-building grants to 26 nonprofits in excess of $2 million. BridgeFund grants are used to create long term operational capacity. Our grant-making profile is unique in its focus on grassroots, youth serving organizations, through a metrics-based grantee selection process that ensures a maximum return on our investment and support.
Youth INC’s Metrics Program helps organizations not only quantify their program measures, but also find sophisticated ways to qualify their impact. Over a 12 month period, partners will participate in a combination of in-person workshops, one-on-one coaching, technical assistance, and peer learning designed to build their evaluative capacity. Using cutting-edge social-emotional learning (SEL) research to underpin evaluation tools, partners learn how to weave these concepts into program design. Specifically, participants measure a core set of research-based SEL youth outcomes that are correlated with academic success, reduced risky behaviors, and increased thriving; and assess staff capacity to deliver effective youth development practices that promote positive outcomes.
