About this grant
This renewal grant provides continued support to the Genesee Area Focus Fund for the YouthQuest After School Initiative. YouthQuest provides children and youth with opportunities to learn and grow through a safe, engaging, and exciting afterschool learning experience, surrounded by caring, responsible adults, and sustained by an involved, contributing community. High quality programming like YouthQuest is crucial in Flint right now, where strong, research-based educational and enrichment opportunities are important interventions for individuals from birth to young adulthood who may have been exposed to lead, as those interventions may mitigate the long-term impacts of such exposure.
