Good News!

The East Harlem Talent Network – in partnership with STRIVE – has been selected by the Citi Foundation and America’s Promise Alliance as one of 12 Youth Opportunity Fund grant recipients for 2016. The Fund – now in its second year – awarded an additional $3 million, for a total of $6 million, in support of programs that connect youth to opportunities that increase their employability and prepare them to compete and thrive in a 21 st century economy. To date, 24 organizations have received support, to reach more than 7,000 youth.

Launched in 2015, the Youth Opportunity Fund is part of the Citi Foundation’s Pathways to Progress initiative, and supports organizations that help empower urban youth, ages 16 to 24. The Fund awards one-year grants of $250,000 to nonprofit organizations in 10 U.S. cities: Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles,Miami, New York City, Newark, St. Louis, San Francisco Bay Area and Washington, D.C.

In New York City,  the EHTN and STRIVE will partner to train youth from low-income families in entry-level food service and hospitality jobs. The program, Serve UP Harlem, will provide youth with case management services, financial literacy training, and help exploring education options.

The Youth Opportunity Fund supports programs that address youth unemployment through partnerships with select municipal governments and collaborations across industries, including IT, technology, healthcare, the service industry and environmental sustainability.
