Fix YouTube activation problems

You submitted the wrong YouTube ID

We need your YouTube channel ID to activate the YouTube Nonprofit program. You can find your channel ID by following the instructions here.

You don't have a YouTube channel

Your organization needs to have an existing YouTube channel to activate the YouTube Nonprofit program. If your organization doesn't have a YouTube channel, you can create one. Once you have a YouTube channel, find your channel ID and use it to activate the YouTube Nonprofit Program.
