Youth Venture is a national nonprofit organization that helps teams of young people (ages 12-20) by providing them the tools necessary to start their own clubs, organizations, or businesses that give back to their communities.

Youth Venture will give your group a seed grant of up to $1,000 to start your venture. Youth Venture will also give you access to scholarships, awards, special conference invitations, media opportunities and a national network of active young people once you successfully complete the application, present your plan, and meet certain Youth Venture requirements.
