This content was produced by GOOD with the support of Microsoft


Young people have the ideas and energy to make positive change in the world, but sometimes they need a boost to get started. That’s where you come in. You can support young people by voting for your favorite U.S.-based nonprofit in the GOOD Maker Give for Youth challenge. Give for Youth is a microgiving site dedicated to funding projects by and for youth.

Thank you for nominating awesome nonprofits! We received more than 150  submissions and eligible organizations are now up for public voting. The 20 nonprofits with the most votes will have the opportunity to be featured on the Give for Youth platform.

Give for Youth, a Microsoft YouthSpark program in partnership with GlobalGiving, lets people find, fund and follow microprojects that empower young people through education, employment and entrepreneurship.

You can help determine which nonprofits will get the opportunity to fund their microprojects on the Give for Youth platform by VOTING from February 18 noon PT to March 1 noon PT. Cast your vote now!

    This is a wonderful opportunity to inspire our youth, the next generation stewards of our environment and our world. Please vote to help us raise funds to give a corps of 12-16 year old National Park Service Biodiversity Youth Ambassadors the opportunity to participate in BioBlitz 2013 at the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve in New Orleans.   Help us to help kids that are passionate about biodiversity.
