About this grant

The Constructive Approach Foundation works to develop, implement and support programs that encourage youth to address social issues in their communities. Its goal is to instill in youth a sense of civic and social responsibility and provide a firm base for a lasting civil society. Multiyear funding will enable the foundation to organize activities around developing youth volunteer centers; using informational-communication technologies to involve young people in community service; coordinating programs aimed at promoting social service work among young people; developing partnerships to create youth policy and youth volunteer programs; and educating high school and college youth about the need for civic participation.Recent accomplishments included publishing a book entitled "Youth Service in Russia"; encouraging youth service though education curricula; researching and establishing volunteer centers; and organizing a roundtable on youth policy in Russia.
