Youth Interactive is proud and honored to have been selected to receive the Invest in Youth grant from the Santa Barbara Foundation! This type of grant is the first of its kind from the Santa Barbara Foundation, totaling $455,000 given out to 20 nonprofit organizations. We were one of those 20 selected amongst 45 other great, youth-oriented organizations applying from around Santa Barbara County.
"Grants, which range from $8,000 to $30,000, were awarded to successful and established youth-development organizations that expand opportunities for personal growth and leadership, support the development of life skills, and improve social and mental well-being of youth." — Jordan Killebrew for Santa Barbara Foundation.
Youth Interactive looks forward to continue our work with the Santa Barbara Foundation to achieve more grant goals in 2017. Doing so will allow us to continue to serve the youth of our community, ultimately making a meaningful impact on their lives as well as the future of Santa Barbara and beyond. Again, we are so grateful!
