The Good Maker is a website in which organizations can apply for funding. Chinatown Youth Initiatives (CYI) wants you to vote for them!
OVERVIEW OF IDEA
CYI is hosting its tenth annual Chinatown Beautification Weekend: a summer weekend of youth empowerment and community love. It consists of a city-wide high school youth conference and a clean-up of Chinatown with over 200 volunteers. Best part: high school students plan the entire weekend.
THE SPECIFICS: WHAT WILL THE $5,000 FUND?
This will be the third time we have a conference and we want to make sure more participants can attend (we usually cap it at 100). Prior to the weekend, we want to host a handball tournament for youth in the LES and Chinatown to participate and learn more about CYI. In addition, this year we added a voter registration component into the weekend as it is an important election year and we hope to partner up with other organizations in NYC to make the vote really count. $5000 will help us make the tenth Chinatown Beautification Weekend the best yet with greater capacity at the conference, a new community event prior to the weekend, and voter registration! All CYI programs are coordinated for and by high school or college aged youth.
