JAMS Foundation Youth Grants for 2022

The JAMS Foundation/ACR Initiative for Students and Youth provides grants for conflict prevention and dispute resolution programs for pre-K-12 students and for adults working with youth populations in ways that directly transfer conflict resolution education (CRE) skills from adults to youth. The focus for 2022 is on utilizing conflict resolution education and training for youth to create opportunities to prevent and manage conflict in the following settings: foster care, homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, school, and after-school programs, and youth correctional facilities. Grants will range from $15,000 to $40,000. Initial project idea descriptions must be submitted by January 14, 2022; invited full proposals will be due May 20, 2022. (An informational conference call will be held on November 22, 2021, at 4 pm EST. Attendance is strongly advised.)
