*This is a “field trip” to a session that is being promoted by the Participatory Grantmakers Community](https://www.participatorygrantmaking.org/). Here’s an excerpt from [the event info page on their website:: https://www.participatorygrantmaking.org/event/the-new-decisionmakers-funding-youth-led-change-through-participatory-grantmaking/*
To learn how to better support youth-led participatory grantmaking, funders are turning to the experts: children and young people themselves. Join our session to hear youth and adult grantmakers discuss key insights from the field!
Elevate Children Funders Group (ECFG) and the Fund for Global Human Rights (the Fund) partner to highlight powerful evidence for investing in child- and youth-led grantmaking. This interactive session will start with an overview of ECFG’s Shifting the Field research, highlighting why youth-led grantmaking is so vital. This will be followed by a panel discussion about the Fund’s youth participatory grantmaking pilot, the Tar Kura initiative, led by Purposeful. The panel lineup includes one of the Tar Kura youth participants, who will offer their invaluable insights about what young people need in order to effectively work with grantmakers. By sharing their experiences, the panelists hope to both highlight the benefits of youth-led participatory grantmaking and support peers who are considering similar initiatives.
