Applications for 2014 Youth Grantmakers in Action grants for youth-directed projects are due to the Winston-Salem Foundation’s offices by Friday, January 24th at 5:00 pm. The Foundation recommends that interested students attend their grantwriting workshop for youth interested in learning more about the process. This workshop will be held at the Foundation’s offices on Wednesday, January 8th at 5:00pm (you can download forms below).


Youth Grantmakers in Action (YGA) of The Winston-Salem Foundation is a diverse group of youth from across Forsyth County that comes together to gain leadership experience, represent youth in their community, voice their opinions, and make grants to youth-directed projects that address community issues and challenges in Forsyth County. This project was created to engage young people and gain their critical insights into the needs of other youth in the community. YGA is structured to support authentic, working partnerships between young people and adults in designing these community-change projects.

Members of Youth Grantmakers in Action are selected each spring for the following school year. Youth between the ages of 15-18 can apply to The Winston-Salem Foundation to join YGA. Participants commit considerable time and energy during the school year to plan the application process and make grants to youth-led projects in Forsyth County. Applications to join YGA are available on the Web site in the spring of each school year.
