Opportunity, Philosophy and Approach

We are a powerful community of influencers, experts, promising nonprofits and over 250,000 young people committed to making our city’s next generation our city’s best generation.


New York is a city of endless opportunity, but not all our youth have the resources they need to meet their potential. Without help, many of the city’s children will be left without the support they need to get them through high school and into a supportive work environment. 

New York City is full of people who want to make the greatest city on earth even greater, by providing support for those who need it most and stepping up to solve problems. There are more than 1,500 youth-serving nonprofit organizations in New York City, all trying to make this city a better place. 

However, with all these different organizations and limited resources, it can be difficult to ensure philanthropic dollars are well spent. This is where Youth INC’s Venture Philanthropy approach makes all the difference.



Youth INC takes a uniquely holistic approach to address the various needs of nonprofits, from improving fundraising practices and building boards to funding critical infrastructure. By applying the best practices from the corporate, academic, and nonprofit sectors, we empower our Nonprofit Partners with the tools to achieve sustainable growth.
