The Philadelphia Foundation program that puts grantmaking in young people’s hands has made its 2018 funding decisions.

YOUTHadelphia, the Youth Advisory Committee of the foundation’s Fund for Children, was established in 2004 to help local teens develop their leadership skills. Funding is supported by the Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Phillies.

This cycle’s 21 participants determined their grantmaking focus areas to be youth wellness, women’s empowerment, college awareness and youth incarceration. Last week, the committee announced it was making a total of $50,000 in grants to six local nonprofits’ leadership- and advocacy-focused programs, of 34 applicants:

To make their decisions, YOUTHadelphia’s members, who come from 10 local schools, have been meeting since October to host open houses for potential applicants, research the nonprofits that applied for grants and make their grant selections.

The program has granted $1.1 million to local nonprofits in the past 14 years. Fuerza has received a YOUTHadelphia grant at least once before, in December 2015.
