Contracts to New York City nonprofit organizations to provide school-based youth development programs for students in grades K-5. The pre-proposal conference will be held on June 26. Elementary programs will support the achievement of all the following five goals:

1) Foster social and emotional competencies and physical well-being
2) Provide opportunities for youth to explore their interests and creativity
3) Build skills that support academic achievement
4) Cultivate youth leadership and community engagement
5) Engage parents and other caretakers to support the above goals

COMPASS elementary programs aim to promote positive youth development, foster social and emotional skills, and strengthen academic skills. The model caters to the “whole child” in kindergarten through 5th grade and reflects lessons learned by DYCD and its contractors over many years as well as findings in the research literature.

The elementary programs offer participants support from caring adults and a balanced mix of high quality educational, recreational, enrichment and cultural activities. In addition to homework help, programs provide engaging activities that focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) or Literacy, as well as physical activity and the arts. In all areas, they offer participants opportunities to practice basic reading, writing and math skills while having fun.

Programs must provide 1,020 hours annually for 36 weeks of the school year, at least 3 hours per day. Total anticipated funding amount is $6,430,000 million annually for the anticipated contract term. The proposed contract budget will be based on an annual price per participant of $3,200 for a year-round program.
