About this grant
This grant will provide support to the United Way of Genesee County for the Bridges to the Future Before and Afterschool Program. The program is designed to improve the cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical outcomes for children in kindergarten through ninth grade by providing academic, cultural, and recreational enrichment in safe, school-based programs. In partnership with the Genesee Intermediate School District and the Flint Community Schools, the program operates in more than 100 sites in 21 school districts. During this grant period, the initiative will focus on refining its program model and providing professional development to the providers in its network. Established in 1922, the United Way of Genesee County supports local nonprofits in the areas of basic needs, child/youth development, older adults, and strengthening families.
