Summer Youth Employment Grant: Many youth do not receive the support they need to develop the life and employment skills needed to transition into adulthood. Churches or organizations can offer a teen or young adult (14-18 years of age) an opportunity to gain work experience and develop leadership and employment skills over the summer (from late June through mid-August) and complete an employment skills curriculum while being supported by adult leaders. UA provides grant funding for programs to offer stipends to teens and young adults who are employed through this opportunity.

Child- and Youth-led Service Projects Grant: When children and youth partner with supportive adults to plan and implement service projects, they develop leadership skills and build character. UA offers grant funding for service projects developed, led and implemented by children and youth to positively impact their local community. The Adult-Youth Partnerships as a Strategy for Leadership Development Training is a prerequisite for this grant opportunity.
