About this grant

In 2013, the Aspen Forum for Community Solutions launched the Opportunity Youth Incentive Fund, which is partnering with 23 communities around the country to design and implement collective impact and community collaboration strategies that build and deepen pathways that achieve better outcomes in education and employment for opportunity youth. This grant will enable Aspen Institute’s Forum for Community Solutions to pilot and infuse youth entrepreneurial education into the Opportunity Youth Incentive Fund network at scale. As part of this project, funding will enable the Flint, Michigan community to receive benefits associated with membership in the Opportunity Youth Incentive Fund national network.
