Economic Independence: Youth Anthology Workshop

Grant Awarded Fall 2022

The Economic Independence Youth Anthology and Workshop provides an opportunity for Black youth under 18 and living in Minnesota to become educated on important financial topics while also providing their artistic viewpoints on those topics.
The program will serve to:
Inspire, equip, and train young BIPOC literary artists to use the arts as a strategic tool for financial literacy, education, and empowerment.

Elevate leaders in the community by providing opportunities for them to educate youth about
important financial topics.

Create a community of young content creators who recognize the value of economic independence and view themselves as leaders on this topic.

At the end of the three-month program, the participants will submit 1,000 words or less as prose, poem, fiction, or creative nonfiction on the topic of Economic Independence. A community panel of judges will choose 50 young artists to be published in the Youth Anthology and the artists will receive an honorarium provided by the Plutus Foundation.
