Supporting local youth is one of the most far-reaching approaches to building a healthy community. Youth programs and activities enrich individual lives and stimulate positive social interaction, while also showing kids the benefits of community organizations and civic participation. More broadly, an investment in local youth represents an investment in the future of our community.

The Juneau Community Foundation’s Youth Fund supports projects that bring people together around the shared goals of enriching the lives of our kids and increasing equity in accessing activities as an investment in the future of our community. Since 2005, the Juneau Community Foundation has invested close to $140,000 in 33 youth-oriented organizations and programs:
