Successful applicants must attend a mandatory Review Committee orientation on Wednesday, Feb. 21 at 6 p.m.

The youth program grants are the fourth component of the My Brother’s and Sister’s Keeper initiative that began in 2016. MBSK consists of the Not My Son campaign, the Cohort of Champions youth training initiative and the My Sister’s Keeper Just B U! Girls Conference.

“We continue to be focused on the youth of our city, particularly those at-risk,” said Mayor Rick Kriseman. “We want to not only help these young people develop marketable skills, but expand job training opportunities for them as well.  We are working with community partners to build a qualified, prepared and ready workforce. That is good news for the young people of our city, and it is good news for our growing business community.”
