Youth Grantmakers in Action is a diverse group of 10th-12th graders from across Forsyth County who meet during the school year to gain leadership experience, represent the youth of the community, and grant money to youth-led community projects that will have a positive impact on other youth. The application for the 2023-2024 YGA cohort is currently open through May 22nd, 2023.
A program of The Winston-Salem Foundation, YGA was formed in 2005 from the vision of Dr. Nathaniel Irvin and the financial support of Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust.
