About Youth INC

Youth INC’s mission is to transform the lives of New York City youth by empowering the organizations that serve them. Youth INC’s network of 75 grassroots nonprofits collectively champions the lives of more than 300,000 young people across the city. Youth INC provides the coaching, capital and connections to our nonprofit partners to help them achieve sustainable growth and maximize their impact.

Over the course of a partnership with Youth INC, our nonprofit partners experience an average growth in revenue of 157%, in board size of 42%, and in youth served of 190%. Our nonprofits using our Metrics Platform demonstrate 81% growth in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), which scholars now agree is the most predictive indicator of success in school, career and life. Since inception, our venture philanthropy model has empowered over 175 nonprofits and impacted the lives of 1,000,000 youth.

At this critical time, Youth INC is excited to partner with Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) for the sixth consecutive year to host our first-ever virtual RBC Race for the Kids— a high energy day of family fun and athletics! Join us to compete for fitness while fundraising for New York City youth, all from the comfort of your own home!

LAST YEAR’S RACE

RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids, supporting youth
charities around the world

Over the past decade, the RBC Race for the Kids series has grown to include 17 charitable events raising more than $57 million for our local charity partners. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic means most of our physical Races can’t happen so welcome to the first ever RBC Global Virtual Race for the Kids. Our ambition is to create the world’s biggest, virtual family fun run in support of over 30 youth charities to help them continue their incredible work at this challenging time.
