About this grant

In Flint and Genesee County, there are many organizations offering free or low-cost summer programs, camps, educational and employment opportunities, feeding programs, and other services for children and young people. To help familiarize and encourage parents, particularly those families living in low-income neighborhoods, to take advantage of these activities, Priority Children is sponsoring a free Summer Youth Expo in May at the centrally located Riverfront Banquet Center. Between 35 to 50 local organizations will be on-site to meet with parents, address their concerns, and encourage them to take advantage of summer learning and recreational opportunities.
