Foundation / Corporation
Grants to Alexandria, Virginia nonprofits, schools and other organizations for programs that promote physical activity for local children and foster academic achievement. Applications are encouraged from schools and teachers that are seeking resources for programs that will get children moving in the classroom or school.
Preference will be given to programs that can provide opportunities for exercise/movement activities before academic learning and in the classroom during the school day. RunningBrooke will not exclude from consideration, after school or intersession programs with a focus on under-served communities.
Applicants should be able to articulate measurable outcomes consistent with the program focus areas:
-Enhancing academic performance through getting kids active before and during learning
-Increasing academic outcomes with the goal of performing at grade level or better
-Helping children (with a K-5 focus) prepare for and develop healthy lifestyle habits at home and in the classroom
Priority will be given to programs that use exercise and/or movement to activate children’s brain development and learning. While this program prioritizes applications that meet the above criteria and the ability to measure outcomes based on academic performance, consideration will also be given to other groups and movement programs whose outcomes are measured by an increase in Positive Attitude, Focus, Confidence or Happiness/Emotional IQ.
Move2Learn is a program that includes information, instruction, potential funding and supporting data that RunningBrooke is sharing across schools and organizations in Alexandria in an effort to get kids moving to spark and heighten learning. RunningBrooke works with educators, nonprofit and community leaders to influence and instill physical activity within existing programs and communities.
Guidelines include: Duration of Physical Activity, Frequency of Activity, Type and Intensity of Activity, and the Emotional IQ of the Student. For Move2Learn partners, these guidelines provide key areas necessary for their program to be more effective: Mastery of School Subject, Focus, Attitude, Confidence, and Happiness/Emotional IQ of Student. The End Result is physically active children, who yield considerable improvement in academic achievement over their sedentary peers. Additionally, active kids are focused, and physically and emotionally healthier.
