About this grant

This grant will support the Church-School Partnership, a project of Flint Community Schools. The program seeks to increase the number of African-American male volunteers in the schools by partnering with places of worship that are in close proximity to a community school and recruiting volunteers from those congregations. The school administrators believe that the additional presence of positive male role models will help to reduce student violence, increase civility, and assist with behavior management through informal mentoring relationships.
