The MENTOR Network Charitable Foundation, Sevita’s private foundation, a leading national provider of community-based health care and support services, is pleased to announce its continued grant partnership the Center for the Study of Social Policy’s (CSSP’s) Youth Thrive 4 Youth program.
The Youth Thrive initiative promotes well-being for young people (ages 9-26). Its Youth Thrive 4 Youth (YT4Y) training was created to share key concepts and research about adolescent development and supports needed for health and well-being. It is a dynamic, engaging, interactive training, developed and led by young professionals with lived experience in foster care, mental health, and other service systems, to youth in similar life situations. With continued grant funding from The Foundation, CSSP will host a convening to train YT4Y participants who can then teach the curriculum to groups in their communities.
The MENTOR Network Charitable Foundation grants funds to 501(c)(3) organizations whose values align with Sevita’s core belief that everyone has the right to live well. These organizations are change agents within health care and human services and are delivering innovative care, developing new ideas and models to improve access to quality health care, and creating opportunities for individuals to live a full, more independent life.
Since its establishment in 2007, the MENTOR Network Charitable Foundation has awarded more than $4 million to hundreds of innovative nonprofits across the country.
