The teams featured bellow are venturers that are part of YV's fiscal sponsorship program. Fiscal sponsorship is a formal legal arrangement in which Youth Venture Inc. (a 501(c)(3) non profit) offers our legal and tax-exempt status to groups engaged in activities related to our mission. Fiscal sponsorship enables youth teams to share Youth Venture’s administrative platform and legal status. This is a great alternative to starting a own nonprofit because it allows Youth Venturers to seek grants and solicit tax-deductible donations under Youth Venture’s exempt status. We ask each sponsored YV team to "pay forward" 10% of revenues that are raised through YV’s 501(c)(3) toward YV supporting other young people to launch ventures.

We kids are donating our hard-earned Halloween candy to share with U.S. soldiers serving around the world and to make a difference for victims of hurricanes, earthquakes and wildfires that have destroyed homes and hurt thousands of families. People need clean water, shelter and food. There are great organizations that are helping, but they need funding. By making a tax-deductible donation here, you are matching our generosity with your own, and you will help the lives of disaster victims. You will receive a report on which organizations were funded, whose lives were impacted, how much Halloween candy was collected, and how awesome it is to work together to improve lives! Moreover, your donation will be further matched by Friends of Trick or Treat for Disaster Relief (including money from our own allowances)! Thank you for your support!
SPREADING LIGHT IN THE LIVES OF UNDERSERVED WOMEN & GIRLS IN INDIA
Ujala empowers underprivileged women in India by teaching them an income-generating skill, candle-making, which makes them self-reliant and financially independent. Ujala has created a cycle of "pay it forward" in which women learning candle-making teach other women this art. A result of change-making workshops held by Ujala is that many marginalized women envision running small businesses in the near future and advocate for their daughters' educations. Ujala strives to turn these visions into reality and to liberate women in a traditionally patriarchal society from years of injustice, abuse, and exploitation.
10% of the global Filipino population lives outside of the Philippines and 10% of Filipino GDP is powered by investments from this diaspora. But these resources are almost never invested in sustainable and systemic models of change. The Kaya Collaborative's fellowship program will bring emerging diaspora leaders to the Philippines for an immersive summer internship and in the end develop "agents of exchange" who will activate their diaspora communities in support of ventures that hold potential to both grow and equalize the Philippine economy.
My Name My Story is an organization that develops changemakers based on the belief that stories inspire empathy, and empathy drives change. We teach students the 21st century skills of a social entrepreneur, empowering them to seize opportunities that others miss by inventing new approaches, collaborating with other leaders, and developing sustainable solutions to social problems. The MNMS program provides students with the tools needed to create opportunities on their school campuses. These programs will engage students with one another, teach the skills they need to instill confidence in their potential for success, and offer new platforms for what leadership looks like within their communities. Our goal is to create a more empathetic school culture and empower students to be agents of change on and off of their campus.
