Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are continuing their work of helping communities in need with their foundation, Archewell.

Today, the duke and duchess of Sussex announced a new partnership with The VING Project—a national movement which is helping create the next generation of philanthropists.

Together, the organizations will invest $1 million to a national giving movement inviting individuals between the ages of 14 and 18 to “nominate a woman who has inspired them and defied life’s hardships,” per an Archewell statement. If chosen, the teens will be able to give a $1,000 grant to their nominees to help them make a difference in their lives.

The collaboration was inspired by Meghan’s Spotify podcast, Archetypes, in which she discusses issues of gender stereotypes and racial profiling, among other things. In recent episodes, she has invited guests Serena Williams, Mindy Kaling, Mariah Carey, Margaret Cho, and Lisa Ling to join in conversations with her.

“Two things that bring me great joy are supporting women, and the spirit of giving,” Meghan said in a statement. “With the return of Archetypes, Archewell Foundation and VING have come together to create the perfect combination of these loves. By donating $1 million in grants to women in need, our hope is not to only provide support where it may be felt deepest, but also empower young adults to embrace the gift of giving at an early age. I’m very proud of this partnership and the good we hope to see come from it.”
