Invoice & Session Report
submit Within 1 Month after each 8, 10, or 12 week session
YBDF will submit payment upon receipt of an invoice and a satisfactory session report.
YBDF will submit payment upon receipt of an invoice and a satisfactory session report. Instructors and Organization Representatives are invited to submit session reports more frequently. The report must, when possible, include participant questionnaires and high quality pictures, videos, or audio clips of participants (with photo release forms, if necessary).
Organization Representatives, such as guidance counselors or any individuals who regularly engage with participants, offer an invaluable perspective as they are uniquely able to see the impact of the program outside of the class. Session reports will be required from Organization Representatives beginning in July 2019.
Some ideas of what we are looking for: What did participants say about the program? What impact did the practice have on the participants (attitude, behavior, etc.)? Please provide any anecdotes or testimonials about the background of participants and benefits of the program, such as:
• Descriptions of participants' lives - home, family, school, etc. and any changes since beginning the program.
• Participants’ responses to the YBDF program.
• Participants taking their yoga, mindfulness, or meditation ("YMM") practice off the mat, using the programs tools in their daily lives to manage emotions, challenges, conflicts, etc.
• Stories about the lasting influence YBDF programs have had on past participants.
• View some examples at ybdf.org/testimonials

*If we do not approve a grant renewal request, YBDF may permit the instructor to invoice for the remaining funds from the previously approved grant request, even if they are holding classes beyond the time range specified in the approved renewal application.
If we do approve a grant renewal request, the unused funds from the previously approved grant do not "roll over" — they are not added to the new grant amount. For classes taking place after the grant cycle begins (Jan. 1 or July 1), instructors may only invoice YBDF up to the amount granted by YBDF for the latest grant cycle.
