The JVA is committed to increasing opportunities for the growth of junior girls and boys volleyball, especially related to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Mental Health, Urban Initiatives, and Disabled and Special Needs programs.

The mission of the JVA Grant Program is to promote the growth and accessibility of youth and junior volleyball by financially supporting JVA members in their efforts to provide new programs and services in their community.

We are specifically looking for programs and services that meet our mission AND can be used as a model for other clubs to replicate all over the country.

*Although we would love to support as many players as possible, this grant money will not be awarded for the use of supplementing club fees.
