Grants to Washington, DC nonprofit organizations to provide extracurricular programming for local school-aged children and youth. Programs must use positive youth development strategies and provide young people with the tools needed to succeed in life. Funding is intended for high-quality programs that take place after regular school hours.
The Government of the District of Columbia (District) is committed to supporting children and youth in preparing for a bright future. In service of that commitment, the District is seeking to support strong nonprofit organizations that provide children and youth with high-quality out-of-school-time (OST) programming.
Learn24 is the name for the network that supports equitable access to high-quality, OST programs for the District’s children and youth. Learn24 supports coordination among nonprofit organizations and District government agencies through targeted grant-making, data collection, evaluation, and through the provision of training, capacity building, and technical assistance to OST providers. The OST Office stewards the Learn24 brand to bring awareness of the OST Office, The Institute for Youth Development, Commission on Out of School Time Grants and Youth Outcomes, higher education partners, District agencies, philanthropic partners, and the hundreds of nonprofits and schools that offer programs to children and youth outside the school day.
The School Year 2021-22 Small Nonprofit Out of School Time RFA and The School Year 2021-22 Out of School Time RFA invite high-performing, fiscally responsible, nonprofits that focus on youth development and serve school aged children and youth with OST programs to apply. Organizations applying must serve youth with a positive youth development approach. Grant funds may only be used to serve children and youth who reside in the District of Columbia. For this RFA, the term youth will be used to describe both children and youth.
For the purposes of this RFA, OST programming is defined as a structured and supervised program offered to a group of District youth before school, after school, on weekends, or during seasonal school breaks.
