Partnership Opportunities

A partner’s contribution of approximately $10,000 will provide year-round weekly after-school classroom training and several field trips to Major Corporations, Institutions and Government agencies for five (5) students, giving them EXPOSURE to real-world work environments.

These contributions can be made in a variety of ways:

  • . General Giving Opportunities: Donations to YEDF General Fund are fast-tracked to the areas of most urgent need; for this reason, we request corporations and individual donors to donate to our general fund.
  • In-Kind Support In-kind Giving of Services and Technology: YEDF welcomes in-kind contributions in the form of services or equipment. In-kind donations are invaluable in their ability to help our organization operate more efficiently. In some situations, in-kind contributions may even allow us to provide new and improved services (i.e. Website Design, Online Learning, Transportation, Special Training Workshops, etc.)
  • Specific Youth Sponsorship Opportunities: Sponsoring students from specific schools, organizations and churches can bring a unique sense of ownership to a donor. Specific Youth Sponsorship Partnerships may be made on behalf of an individual or group, such as a company, church or foundation, and involve cash or in-kind donations to the YEDF service or event.

We all have a stake in the future of our young people. We believe that we all share a responsibility for preparing them for success
