Grantmakers for Thriving Youth: supporting the development of skills & capacities for learning, work, citizenship & life

WHO WE ARE

Grantmakers for Thriving Youth (GTY) is a funders’ forum advancing a comprehensive approach to learning and development that will enable all young people to acquire the skills and capacities needed for success in learning, work, citizenship and life.

WHAT WE DO

GTY promotes awareness, facilitates connections, catalyzes collaborations, and disseminates knowledge about policies, practices and research among funders in education, child and youth development, family well-being, health and other allied fields.

FUNDER SPOTLIGHT

Kelly James, Partner, Education First, and consultant on the NoVo Foundation’s SEL grantmaking:

The NoVo Foundation, a longtime funder in the social and emotional learning (SEL) field, believes that instilling children with social and emotional skills is fundamental to building a more just, balanced and equitable world.  SEL is the process of developing skills for life success within supportive, participatory learning environments.  Attained through both curricula and instructional practices, SEL skills include:

  • recognizing and managing emotions;
  • developing caring and concern for others;
  • establishing positive relationships; and
  • making responsible decisions.

As NoVo deepens its SEL work, it is putting new learning into action.  For example, the foundation is launching the SEL Innovation Fund, which recently provided $1 million in grants to teachers and school districts to support SEL implementation across the country. Teacher recipients represent 52 districts in 28 states, and district recipients hail from 22 states.
