Before filling out an application and starting a proposal, you'll want to reach out to the SCYP manager. She will help guide your application, and make sure you're thoroughly prepared to take on the partnership. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (541) 346-6395.
The Request for Proposals becomes available in November the year prior to partnership. Proposals are due on the subsequent 31st of January. Below, you will find a detailed guide on the drafting process.
Partners are selected in late February, and announced to the media and the public in early May. If you are not selected, you may re-apply in future years.
