The Invest in Youth Coalition is a new citywide coalition of youth, individuals, community based organizations and funders working to make Richmond a youth, young adult and family friendly city.
The Coalition aims to:
- Identify and agree on priorities for youth and young adults in Richmond;
- Secure a fund that serves the explicit needs of children and youth in the City of Richmond as outlined by a Children’s Budget: Richmond Fund for Children and Youth; (this is the priority for 2016) and
- Create opportunities for young people to influence decision-makers on the needs and priorities of children and youth in the City of Richmond.
