About this grant

This grant will provide support to the Campaign for Youth, a project of the Center for Law and Social Policy, to increase the visibility of disconnected youth issues as a national priority and policy agenda item. The Campaign for Youth is a coalition of national youth policy and direct service organizations committed to bringing attention to the needs of young people who are out of work, out of school, and out of the mainstream. Support will enable the Campaign for Youth to hire a senior-level staff person to coordinate the coalition’s efforts and engage a communications firm to assist in message development and other communication/media strategies to elevate the challenges and solutions for disconnected youth.
