Thursday, July 22, 2021

Youthprise and St. Paul Public Schools have partnered to provide funding for youth serving organizations to provide summer enrichment activities to St. Paul Public School students. Their intent is to provide high-quality services to St. Paul Public School students that will increase the likelihood of their academic success, provide safe and supportive summer environments, provide caring adults, and provide fun and enriching activities and events.

  • Mentoring Services
  • Tutoring Services
  • General Enrichment Services
  • Summer Field Trips for Hands-on Learning Opportunities

Successful applicants will have experience working with St. Paul Public School students and providing high quality mentoring, tutoring, enrichment, and hands-on learning programming. In addition, projects that provide meals and transportation for students will be better positioned for funding. Projects are short term and will begin in July 2021 and conclude in September 2021. Because of the need to expedite the release of funding, there will be two more rounds of review with rolling deadlines for application submission, with the next deadline coming up fast on July 26.
