Capacity Building Resources

Afterschool for Children and Teens (ACT Now) and the Illinois Collaboration on Youth (ICOY) are contracted by the Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Family and Community Services, Bureau of Positive Youth Development to work collaboratively to provide technical assistance to youth-serving organizations throughout the state.

Organizations that are interested in expanding their capacity by applying for funding from a variety of stakeholders (such as state agencies, federal, local, foundation, or corporate sources) should contact us through our Youth Development Programming Capacity Building Questionnaire to receive a one-on-one consultation.

For additional resources check out our online capacity building tool below, or view the larger full-screen version of the tool here.
