About the Grant

Are you a young person determined to drive positive change? Whether you have an idea to impact your community for the better or have already established a social impact initiative, Taco Bell Foundation’s Ambition Accelerator aims to fuel the next generation’s bold ambitions for creating change.

The Taco Bell Foundation Ambition Accelerator, powered in partnership with Ashoka and funded by Yum!’s Unlocking Opportunity initiative, invites young people to share their social impact ideas to drive positive change in their communities. The Ambition Accelerator is a platform for young changemakers to access funding, grow their changemaking skills, and join a community of peers and mentors who are leaders in the social impact space.

We are looking for applicants with strong answers to questions about what their idea or project is, how it will work, and how they activate others in their community. All applicants will also be evaluated on their ability to share their changemaking journey and how it has fueled this idea.
