a Youth INC and RevJen partnership
Powering leaders. Accelerating Nonprofits. Creating a world where all young people thrive.
Prosperity Collective, a Youth INC and RevJen Group partnership, provides specialized resources and tools, training and learning opportunities, and customized coaching to over 60 New York youth development nonprofits and their leaders. Through this partnership, RevJen Group brings its tested expertise and training to Youth INC’s Partner Network by providing revenue capacity-building training, ongoing peer support, and targeted board engagement. Matched with Youth INC’s holistic, responsive coaching model and authority in change management, Prosperity Collective aims to help organizations, their leaders, and ultimately, New York City youth thrive.
- More than half of development directors anticipate resigning in two years or less. In an industry predicated on strong interpersonal relationships, a high turnover of fundraising staff constricts organizational growth.
- 70% of youth-centered organizations report having inadequate resources, and less than 50% feel they can meet the needs of the young people they serve. The COVID-19 pandemic further exacerbated these long-standing industry issues.
- A robust infrastructure is vital for success. However, nonprofit organizations are often incentivized to keep overhead costs to a minimum and are hindered by limited time, money and expertise
Three ways to engage
fuel series workshops
Cohort One launched in 2021, additional cohorts launching in 2022.
Fuel Series Workshops provide leadership teams with the opportunity to sharpen revenue strategy and build revenue infrastructure for success. Through a 6-month series of group workshops and individual coaching, Youth INC Nonprofit Partners will analyze and develop: Revenue Model, Revenue Strategy, Organizational Design, Resource Allocation Strategy, and Revenue Culture.
r-squared peer groups
Initial cohorts launched January 2022, additional cohorts launching in 2022.
R-Squared Peer Groups is a facilitated peer group experience where nonprofit leaders in similar organizational responsibilities join together as thought partners to confidentially uncover and address real-time opportunities and challenges and share best practices. Through monthly facilitated roundtables, peer groups will work together to deconstruct challenges to uncover root causes and generate solutions. Peers become accountability partners in helping each member progress through their most pressing challenges and opportunities.
Initial board engagements launched in summer 2022
Exclusively for nonprofit boards of directors, this customized two-hour interactive workshop is designed to engage nonprofit fiduciary boards and share ways to support the work of their leadership teams. Workshops address root causes versus symptoms of revenue challenges and focus on building organizational revenue capacity that works for all types of revenue. During the time together, board leaders will explore a strategic approach to revenue generation that helps maximize impact.
