About the Taco Bell Foundation Amibiton Accelerator:
We know that today’s young people are determined to impact the world for the better. But those brave enough to pursue social impact often come up against major barriers — from lack of skills and social connections to limited financial savvy and funds. To help young changemakers across all communities overcome these barriers, we are partnering with the Taco Bell Foundation to launch the Ambition Accelerator.
The Accelerator challenges young people to submit their venture ideas for the opportunity to participate in a new program where they will grow their changemaking abilities, access funding, receive mentorship, and join a community of like-minded individuals.
Now through July 21, 2022, we're accepting applications from young innovators, ages 16-26, across the United States and US territories with new or pre-existing ideas to enact change in their communities. However, if you apply by June 1, 2022, you could be eligible for an early entry prize!
Why apply early?
- Chance to win one of SIX Early Entry Prizes! Taco Bell and Ashoka will select six outstanding teams from all eligible applicants that apply by June 1, 2022, for a cash prize of $500.
- Receive feedback from experts! ALL entries submitted by the early entry deadline will receive feedback to improve their application before the final deadline of July 21, 2022.
Apply by June 1st at 11:59 PM EST / 8:59 PM PST to be eligible.
