Apply for a Grant

Youth As Resources is an organization that develops youth and gives small grants to them to operate student-led projects in the community. Once a grant application is received, a screening committee composed of youth and adult members interviews youth applicants about their project, evaluates their grant application and presentation, and makes recommendations to the YAR Board of Directors regarding project funding.

Projects funded will be those:

  • that address a critical community problem(s)
  • where young people come up with the idea, create the plan, do the work and make the decisions — with the help and support of adults
  • that can be started and carried out by the same group of young people *grant application must be filled out by youth*

Things to remember

If filling out the online application, make sure that all text remains visible in the text boxes. Once the online form is completed, press submit at the bottom. If you would prefer to type or handwrite your application, please send the completed form to: Youth As Resources | PO Box 94 | Richmond, IN 47375

Grant applications are accepted through out the year, but the YAR committee should receive your application at least a month prior to your project’s starting date.

The YAR board will look favorably on requests that develop one or more of the 40 Development Assets in Youth.
