Sports for Youth, an initiative of UJA-Federation of New York, supports the helpful effect of sports on youngsters by enabling children of all backgrounds, as well as all ages and athletic abilities, to enjoy sports.

Sports for Youth provides grants for programs at UJA-Federation’s network of nearly 100 beneficiary agencies throughout the five boroughs, Westchester, and Long Island, and select projects overseas.

Local agencies eligible for Sports for Youth funding include JCCs, Ys and camps, as well as human-service agencies with sports-related programs. Funded projects have included refurbishing basketball courts, swimming pools, tennis and other sports facilities, plus providing necessary sports and safety equipment, sports programming, and sports education.
