Funders Collaborative for Youth Organizing

Description:

Founded in 2000, the Funders’ Collaborative on Youth Organizing (FCYO) is a dynamic collective of social justice funders and youth organizing practitioners dedicated to advancing youth organizing as a strategy for youth development and social change. FCYO’s mission is to increase resources to the field of youth organizing and promote the leadership of low-income young people and young people of color in social justice organizing. Our work is focused on the following program areas:

  • Strategic Grantmaking & Capacity Building: to strengthen the organizational capacity, sustainability, power, and efficacy of youth organizing groups
  • Infrastructure Development: to build a more connected youth organizing field with shared strategies to engage more young people, expand power, and address pressing issues
  • Funder Advocacy, Advisory, and Learning: to build an aligned and growing base of funders committed to youth organizing
  • Research and Communications: to expand the base of knowledge about the impacts of youth organizing and develop a shared narrative around this work
