This grant provides support to the Crim Fitness Foundation in its role as the lead agency for a reimagined community schools model in Flint. The third year of developing and implementing the community schools strategy will involve adding new partners, expanding programs at all nine elementary schools, and beginning to initiate the strategy at the two high schools in the Flint Community Schools district. The community schools strategy will help make available the strong, research based educational and enrichment opportunities that 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.
