Through the Forward Promise Community Partnership grants, RWJF is investing in coordinated community solutions making a collective impact in the health and success of middle and high school-aged young men and boys of color. We are focusing on interventions such as mentorship, job training, and school programs that are proven through research to make a difference for young people, their families and their communities.

After a rigorous process, six city-based projects were selected to receive an average of $250,000 for a duration of up to 24 months. The grantees represent a diversity of approaches toward taking collective action in the lives of boys and young men of color.
