About this grant
This grant to Synergy Enterprises, Inc., will provide funding for the 2007 Summer Institute that supports the 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative. The 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative provides grants to inner-city and rural schools working in close cooperation with community organizations and other education and youth development agencies to provide expanded learning opportunities outside of regular school hours for children in a safe and smart environment. The purpose of this three-day conference is to provide workshops to familiarize grant recipients with grants administration assistance and with successful strategies in implementing reading, mathematics, science, and arts into afterschool programs. The annual conference is one of the training and technical assistance activities the Mott Foundation sponsors as part of its partnership with the U.S. Department of Education.
