All of our futures depend on supporting young people now —especially Black, Indigenous, and People of Color youth who have experienced the most severe impacts of the pandemic. Times call for philanthropy to act together and share power with Bay Area youth to counter the educational, social, and emotional losses from more than a year without in-person learning at public schools. We must listen to young people, support their leadership, and step outside of traditional grantmaking approaches to build the strength of trusted nonprofit partners who are deeply engaging with youth in our region.
Young people, and their nonprofit and philanthropic partners, will discuss the impacts of the pandemic on their lives; the support they are asking for; and how philanthropy can act collectively with young people to build the resilience, hope, and joy of Bay Area youth and youth-serving nonprofits. Join us to hear from youth leaders and partners of the Generational Recovery Fund, which invests in Black, Indigenous, and People of Color youth to successfully navigate their recovery from the harms of COVID-19.
