Through a partnership between the Cranbrook Educational Community's Institute of Science and the Flint Community Schools, Flint students in grades seven and eight will receive supplemental educational opportunities in science that correspond with grade-level content. Programming offered by the grantee will include access to the institute's staff, collections, and resources; an opportunity for Flint families to spend a day at the institute, including transportation; annual membership passes to the institute and affiliated museums that families can check out for unlimited use; rich, in-depth professional development for faculty; and a summer program for a smaller group of Flint students.
This grant will allow the Flint Cultural Center Corporation, in partnership with other cultural center institutions, to provide educational programming to Flint Community Schools students. Declining school budgets have forced Flint schools, like many districts, to reduce or eliminate arts and cultural programming from its curriculum as well as restrict field trips to the Flint Cultural Center to take advantage of the high-quality educational programs they offer. Due to Flint's high poverty rate, many families are not able to afford to take their children to the cultural center. The Flint Cultural Center Educational Outreach Program would provide Flint students access to various educational programs and activities available from any Flint Cultural Center organization during the 2013-14 school year.
Genesee County Parks & Recreation Commission has been dedicated to providing all the residents of Genesee County with affordable, quality recreational and educational facilities. The Genesee County parks are widely utilized as accessible and inexpensive recreational and outdoor opportunities for local residents, and attendance in most facilities has either held constant or increased despite the recent critical economic conditions. This grant will enable the commission to continue regular operation and maintenance of county park facilities, current levels of programming, and outreach and community engagement efforts.
