Support for Collaborations Serving Boys and Young Men of Color

Forward Promise, an initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, seeks to strengthen partnerships between community-based organizations that ground their programs for boys and young men of color (BYMOC) in culturally responsive methods and models, and their systems partners. The Partnering with Systems to Disrupt Dehumanization call for proposals will support up to seven organizations to partner with a local or regional youth-serving system to increase the understanding of issues faced by BYMOC in these systems and the historical role of dehumanization by systems, uplift the current disparities that exist in the public system, deepen knowledge of culturally responsive approaches as effective strategies for addressing trauma and promoting healing, devise a plan for working together to test approaches, and identify sustainable opportunities to change the way these systems do business and approach their work with BYMOC. Up to seven organizations will receive a grant of up to $150,000 to support the planning, implementation, and evaluation of partnership efforts between community-based organizations and youth-serving systems such as juvenile justice, child welfare, education, housing, and health provision within their communities.
