Afterschool Awards Applications Due Feb 17th

The New York Life Foundation invests in middle school OST programs to help economically disadvantaged eighth-graders get to ninth grade on time. Research has shown that for disadvantaged students, more learning time in the form of high-quality afterschool, expanded-day, and summer programs leads to greater achievement, better school attendance, and more engaged students.

The Foundation has invested more than $24 million in national middle school OST efforts in the past 13 years, supporting organizations that provide nearly 500,000 middle school youth with afterschool and summer programming. Foundation grants have supported an additional 6 million hours of OST programming. The new Aim High grants provide a way for the Foundation to support smaller programs in communities across the nation.

 

The Deadline to apply is Friday February 17th
