Call for Applications: 2013 Youth Solidarity Funds

Deadline: February 13th, 2013

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations has launched its 2013 Call for Applications for the Youth Solidarity Funds program. This is a great opportunity to receive funding for qualified youth organisations.

This year the UNAOC aims to provide seed funding to exceptional youth projects that have a special focus on areas that concern UNAOC such as fostering mutual respect, understanding and long-term positive relationships between peoples of different cultures and religions.


The Youth Solidarity Fund (YSF) provides seed funding to outstanding youth-led initiatives that promote long-term constructive relationships between people from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds. The Fund links small scale and local work to larger movements for social and global change. The YSF supports the development of young peoples’ organizations and other means for their work to have an even broader and deeper impact and to be expanded. It was established to answer the calls for action made around the world by youth organizations since the creation of the UNAOC.
