For Youth, By Youth
YouthBank is an innovative youth philanthropy program which was started in Northern Ireland 20+ years ago. Northfield YouthBank has been running for eight years and Faribault is just starting its fourth year!
A team of trained youth grant-makers will be awarding funds to youth-led projects that will improve the quality of life for youth in Faribault.
How does YouthBank help youth?
On top of funding valuable community projects, Faribault YouthBank helps young people develop essential life skills and prepares them for future careers. Members of the granting committee are responsible for engaging in community research, fundraising, promoting grant opportunities, reviewing requests for funding and engaging in the decision making process, working alongside young people in promoting their work, writing reports and engaging with grant recipients to learn what worked well.
