Youth Futures Fund - Young Black Climate Leaders
Fund Amount: $1,500-$6,500 per project
In the spirit of Octavia Butler, Harriet Tubman and countless Black ancestors who were geniuses in ecological and cultural beauty, we gather and build. Young Black Climate Leaders (YBCL) provides opportunities for Black youth to expand their roles as environmental and climate leaders. Through events (Dream Labs) and resources like the YBCL scholarship and a youth-directed fund (coming soon), YBCL supports the dreams and climate futures of Black youth as they develop and lead. YBCL supports a growing, vibrant ecosystem of young Black leaders successfully advocating for and transforming their communities for racial and environmental justice with access to support, resources, and funding while transforming the broader climate movement.
With appreciation for the amazing ongoing work of young Black leaders and their potential to make powerful changes for climate justice, we are launching a grant fund led by young Black leaders for young Black leaders working on social justice, climate, and their intersections. The vision is to help resource Black leaders (ages 18-28) in their community work. We will uplift climate resistance and regenerative practices and assist those resisting White supremacy. A diversity of projects and approaches will be supported.
