External Agency Fund: YES! Youth Services


The YES!, Youth Engagement Services, division of the Office for Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods, works to create a network of groups and services that literally transform social and government systems that systematically repress the diverse youth voice and their rights to live equitably. Grants for community efforts for violence prevention and reduction help to ensure the health, well-being and voice inclusion of all youths in Louisville and Jefferson County and promotes a youth’s development of good character and citizenship.

All grantees will be regularly monitored for program effectiveness and are expected to submit routine reports.
