The DVULI experience does not end upon graduation. We are committed to continued support of our participants as they strive to achieve their personal and ministry goals.

As a part of this commitment, we encourage our participants upon completion of the training to continue collaborating with their fellow DVULI alumni and with others who work with urban youth within their community. To help them accomplish this, we offer collaborative grant opportunities for alumni, made available through the DeVos Foundation.

We offer these small seed grants to select collaborative projects that are being planned and implemented by a core group of DVULI alumni, with support from other urban youth ministry workers in the community. To be considered for a grant, these projects should also support an ongoing forum for youth workers to gather for training, networking and personal encouragement.
