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 over 75 grassroots nonprofits collectively champion the lives of more than 200,000 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 of 157% growth in their budgets, 42% average increase in Partner board sizes, 68% of organizations expand their programs or open new sites, and a 190% increase in youth served by our Partners. Our nonprofits using our Metrics Platform demonstrate 83% growth in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), which scholars now agree is the most predictive indicator of success in school, career and life. Investing in SEL creates generates an 11x return on investment, producing over $1B in impact! Since inception, our venture philanthropy model has empowered over 170 Nonprofit Partners, impacted the lives of 1,000,000 youth, and raised over $100M in support of our Partners and Programs.

Youth INC is excited to partner with Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) for the seventh consecutive year to host another successful 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!

A Global, Virtual, Family Fun Run Supporting Youth Charities Around the World

Since 2009, RBC Race for the Kids has grown to an exciting series of 17 charitable Races taking around the world, supporting kids and youth-focused causes. In total, 290,000+ participants have raised more than C$65 million.

In 2020, the series of in-person Races couldn’t happen so we pivoted to a global, virtual RBC Race for the Kids to continue raising much-needed funds for our charity partners. Last year, over 33,000 participants from 120+ countries raised more than C$8.8 million!

Join us and participants from all around the globe to raise awareness and support for our 35 charity partners in 19 countries – and the young people they help during this challenging time.
