Youth Endowment Fund – Summer Jobs Delivery Partner
Closing Date: 01/12/2023
Organisations can apply for the opportunity to be a YEF delivery partner to lead on the design, set up and delivery of a new Summer Jobs Programme, which will provide short-term paid work placements for young people between the ages of 16-24 at risk of becoming involved in violence.
In this funding round the funders are looking to set up a Summer Jobs Programme scheme in the UK similar to established and evaluated US schemes and grow it to sufficient scale where it would be feasible to evaluate it using a randomised controlled trial (RCT).
The funding round will have two core aims:
Design, develop and deliver a promising new Summer Jobs Programme in the UK that provides high-quality work opportunities that are attractive to vulnerable young people and has the direct aim of reducing youth violence.
Generate robust evidence on the impact of the new Summer Jobs Programme on reducing youth violence, and improving education, employment and wellbeing outcomes.
The purpose of this call for proposals is to appoint a delivery partner (or a consortium of delivery partners) who will be responsible for developing the precise details of the programme design in collaboration with the EYV lab. All delivery costs will be fully covered by the grant. This includes employment costs/wages which will be fully subsidised by the grant.
