Wilson Foundation offers chance for 1,000 teens to make $1,000 by sharing ideas

Support this work for $1 a month

The Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation is inviting teens ages 13 to 18 to become "generators" and share their ideas for afterschool programs.

The foundation is selecting 1,000 teens who will be paid $1,000 each for their participation in early 2021. An additional $3 million will be paid in grants to organizations to implement what are deemed to be the best ideas.

Calling afterschool "a unique space between school and life, where you make friends, learn things, explore," the Generator Z initiative will pay participants over the course of the year for their ideas, opinions and expertise, which will be shared with afterschool program providers.

The deadline to apply is Friday. Go to generator-z.org
