The Dream Keeper Initiative (DKI) is a community-driven initiative with the goal of reinvesting into San Francisco’s Black communities across a number of different activities, events and programs. As a proud participant in the Dream Keeper Initiative, GLIDE will support low-income Black San Francisco residents who have experienced intergenerational violence due to systemic racism. Through this work and investments, GLIDE aims to further our mission of breaking cycles of poverty and ensure that new investments  including in youth development and economic opportunity  are accessible to San Francisco’s families who are most in need.

As part of GLIDE’s participation with the DKI, we will be awarding Transition-Age Youth (TAY) mini-grants of up to $500 per person in the form of Visa gift card for 150 Black/BIPOC youth ages 18-24 who live in San Francisco. These mini-grants will provide stimulus/reparations funds to help youth overcome barriers stemming from community violence and/or domestic violence. The GLIDE mini-grant investment will reflect trust in youths’ judgment and build confidence. These grants will provide a significant resource to help youth embark on a path toward realizing life goals. 

Applications for the 2nd round of mini-grants are available February 1 and will run through April 15.

Applicants selected for the mini-grants will be awarded $500 stipend in the form of a Visa gift card.
