NJHI: Next Generation Community Leaders supports communities in preparing the next generation of civic and community leaders by leveraging the strengths of youth to build healthier communities. This program supports communities in preparing the next generation of civic and community leaders by providing them with the resources and technical assistance they need to focus the time, talent, and energy of youth, while also providing each youth with an opportunity to make meaningful change in their communities through summer employment on a self-designed, community-focused project.

Through this initiative, NJHI supports up to 10 organizations in engaging teams of 10-15 youth to effect long-term change in their communities. Each selected grantee receives a grant of up to $200,000 in total over three years. The application deadline for NJHI: Next Generation Community Leaders has passed.
