Soul of the City provides young people, ages 14 to 19, an opportunity to explore the role of the humanities in asking and answering critical questions about the world. The Soul of the City grant encourages the development and delivery of a high-quality humanities-driven youth engagement program. The award recognizes innovative models that empower and engage young people in programs that build civic engagement, critical thinking and leadership skills. This opportunity is part of the Humanities Grant Program supported with funding from the District of Columbia Government through the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
Awarded since 2014, Soul of the City grants provide communities, neighborhood organizations, churches and educational organizations the opportunity to work with young people through the humanities lens.
