Youth Solidarity Fund, United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, New York, NY, USA. Deadline: 14 May 2023.
Through a competitive evaluation process, Youth Solidarity Fund (YSF) will award seed funding of up to USD 25,000 for the implementation of outstanding and impactful projects that use intercultural and interfaith dialogue and are aligned with the mandate and mission of UNAOC. The YSF only supports projects that are entirely developed and managed by youth, for the benefit of the whole society, especially youth. The YSF supports youth-led organizations that foster peaceful and inclusive societies. UNAOC additionally offers capacity-building support to help youth-led organizations strengthen the implementation of their projects.
The age definition used by UNAOC to characterize youth is an individual between the ages of 18 and 35. While the projects target mainly young people, they have an impact on entire communities, often involving religious or political leaders, policy-makers, educational institutions and media organizations.
