$15,000 to support 14 prevention projects implemented by young women
My Future Initiative (MyFI) was a Sacramento County-based coalition of girls ages 12-17 and adult allies whose vision was to prevent alcohol use among teenage girls through partnership with local organizations, outreach, education, advocacy, and the provision of safe and positive environments. The coalition’s biggest outcome was designing a youth grants program which resulted in re-granting approximately $15,000 to support 14 prevention projects implemented by girls and young women in the Sacramento area. Projects ranged from Mongolian teens educating parents on the impact of youth alcohol use to youth school climate digital storytelling to a knitting group that incorporated sessions on substance use prevention, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship. Together, these grants reached at least an additional 1000 youth in Sacramento County.

Mini-grants are a core strategy for engaging communities to improve health and equity. Often, modest amounts of funding can help non-traditional partners achieve major impacts by reaching the people most affected by the issues we’re trying to resolve. CCP has a long history of successfully launching and implementing mini-grant programs in partnership with philanthropic and government agencies. Community members typically assist with decision making, based upon criteria in a rubric. CCP can assist your organization with program design, outreach, and the application process including review and selection. We also can manage grant distribution, payment processing, contract management and monitoring.
