Youth Pathways to Health
The goal of our Youth Pathways to Health grantmaking is to lead or support efforts to ensure those young people at greatest risk of poor outcomes have opportunities to find on-ramps to a healthy developmental path.
Through Youth Pathways to Health, our investments are focused primarily on four critical areas that affect youth well-being: Education, Health, Civic Engagement and Employment. Our investments have included support for policy change and promising practices to improve outcomes for young people.
