As an initial project under our new Invest in Youth program, the Foundation is launching the Brooklyn Youth Fellowship. We are currently seeking nonprofits to apply to host 2-4 fellows between the ages of 16-24 for 10 months. Selected nonprofits will receive $2,500 in operating support per fellow, plus a $5,000 stipend for each fellow. In 2015, we will provide awards for up to 20 fellows and 5-10 nonprofit partners.
We are pleased to announce the official launch of the Brooklyn Accelerator, a unique component of our new community impact strategy designed to be a hub of information, idea exchange, and gathering of philanthropic resources across the borough.
