Youth Grantmakers (YG) is a permanent, youth-led grantmaking body through which private and public youth-serving resources can flow. Baltimore’s Promise serves as the organizational home for this initiative working with local Funders and youth themselves to create a pooled grantmaking model. This intergenerational, grantmaking model has been developed in partnership with older youth from Baltimore City ages 16-24 as the inaugural cohort of YGs. 

According to the Baltimore City Youth Opportunities Landscape, only 9% of youth opportunities are available to youth ages 16-24 who have graduated high school or are not in school or working.  Therefore, in response to the overwhelming need for more opportunities, this first cycle of grantmaking distributed $525,000 in resources to support 10 youth-serving organizations providing economic opportunity and mobility programming for Baltimore City older youth ages 16-24.
