Thriving Youth. Thriving Community.



For Youth, By Youth

YouthBank is an innovative youth philanthropy program in which a team of trained youth grant-makers award funds to youth-led projects that will improve the quality of life in Northfield.

We are looking for members to join our grant making team.

As a new member of our team, you would go through the necessary training to be able to review grants submitted by youth in Northfield and decide where our grant money will go. As a part of YouthBank you will gain leadership skills and watch your community become something you and your peers want it to be.

Please encourage your friends and classmates to apply as well; we want Northfield YouthBank to really reflect our community!
