Grants to New Jersey nonprofit youth organizations and public schools to provide out-of-school time (OST) programs for youth in grades K-12 that are at risk of academic failure. OST programs include high-quality summer enrichment and afterschool programs.
The intent of these funds is to provide more time for youth to practice skills, gain knowledge, explore topics of interest, socialize with peers and develop positive relationships in an informal setting. Furthermore, the program is intended to equalize opportunities for students from low- income families and mitigate summer learning loss. Additionally, since juvenile violence peaks in the afterschool hours on school days, OST programs also provide a safe haven for youth and give parents peace of mind, so that they can continue to be productive employees.
Therefore, the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is offering these funds to organizations willing to expand existing afterschool and summer programs or create new OST programs that offer high-quality, engaging activities to youth throughout New Jersey. It is expected that these programs will: increase students' career and college readiness and increase positive student behavior while engaging parents. The applicant must enhance educational experiences for students between the age of five and 18 by providing targeted activities in at least one of the following areas: academic enrichment in any subject area, STEM, career awareness/exploration and/or community service.
