OYFP selects its partners on the basis of several criteria, which include, but are not limited to:
Opportunities for involvement. Partners should support opportunities for involvement for members of the community, particularly among young people, primarily in the form of volunteer programs and events. Partners should be amenable to one-day and ongoing volunteer events organized by OYFP in conjunction with the Partners. This application period is for the Boston chapter of OYFP.
Need. Partners should demonstrate a need for assistance in areas of educating the community about its activities, recruiting volunteers, reaching out to younger demographics, and fundraising. OYFP will take into consideration OYFP's ability to respond to those needs as effectively as possible within the parameters defined by OYFP's resources and capabilities.
Sustainability of Partner programs. OYFP defines the sustainability of a given Partner program as the program's ability to provide or engender long-term solutions to the specific problems that are being addressed.
