Grants to USA nonprofit providers of out-of-school programs to enhance extracurricular programming for students in grades 6-8. Funding is intended to support efforts to foster youth well-being in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, promote racial and social justice, and support the transition from middle school to high school. Applicants must serve a high percentage of low-income youth.
On behalf of the New York Life Foundation, the Afterschool Alliance invites out-of-school time programs to apply for a competitive grant opportunity to support and bolster the ability of afterschool and summer learning programs to help prepare middle school students for success in high school, college, and life.
The New York Life Foundation created the Aim High grant program to support the ability of local community-based afterschool and summer learning programs to provide the foundational skills and guidance that middle school students need to be prepared for the critical transition into high school.
The New York Life Foundation recognizes that we are living in a pivotal time when it is imperative to build on their legacy of support for marginalized communities and communities of color as part of their ongoing commitment to support an equitable and just society. Understanding the unique role that afterschool and summer learning programs can play in addressing equity, ten of the 1-year grants are once again dedicated to supporting programs in their efforts around advancing racial equity and social justice.
The New York Life Foundation also recognizes the crisis the nation faces around youth mental and emotional well-being which has been intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to enhance programs’ abilities to respond to the holistic needs of the youth that they serve, ten of this year’s 1-year grants will go towards programs’ efforts to support youth well-being.
Applicants for all 1-year grants will further be required to describe how they support middle school youth in the transition to high school.
