About Youth INC
Youth INC’s mission is to transform the lives of NYC youth by empowering the organizations that serve them. While there are over 1,500 organizations helping children in New York, it’s hard to identify the best and expand their reach. That’s where Youth INC comes in. Youth INC uses a rigorous screening process to identify the most promising youth-serving nonprofits. Then, we partner to help nonprofits develop robust fundraising capabilities, build a strong board of directors, issue grants that accelerate growth and drive sustainable scale, and establish metrics to improve programs and demonstrate impact. After partnering with Youth INC, nonprofits experience an average revenue increase of more than 197% and serve 129% more youth. This unique venture philanthropy model has helped Youth INC raise over $80 million for over 150 partner organizations since 1995, enabling them to improve the lives of NYC youth each year.
