SISGI Beyond Good Ideas Foundation Inc.
AmeriCorps National Direct FY 2012
The Alliance for Positive Youth Development (APYD) Fellows Program will engage, equip and mobilize 26 two-year half-time AmeriCorps members to become effective agents of sustainable change in 10 states, Puerto Rico and Washington D.C. The fellows will provide training, service opportunities and a national online networking community to up to 1300 other youth, 25 years old and younger wanting to make a difference in the target communities. They will also increase awareness of and connections to community youth-serving organizations through capacity building services and strategic partnership building. At the end of the 3-year project period, target communities will experience increased collaborative relationships between youth and the community organizations that serve them and will have developed sustainable solutions that positively impact their communities on a larger scale. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of Capacity Building. The CNCS investment of $172,900 will be matched with $153,868.
