ProsperUs is seeking community organizations that can support the delivery of new out-of-school time solutions for elementary-aged children in West Windsor, Downtown Windsor, and Leamington.
ProsperUs has recently completed designing of solutions for Milestones 2 and 3, in partnership with Community Action Network (CAN) working groups comprised of neighbourhood youth and residents with lived experience, front-line service providers, and other subject matter experts.
In the Cradle to Career strategy, Milestone 2 seeks to increase the number of students who are proficient in reading in Grade 3 and are therefore more likely to graduate high school. Milestone 3 seeks to increase the number of students who are proficient in math in Grade 6 who are then more likely to complete post-secondary and be prepared for the workforce.
Out-of-school time solutions can be structured programming related to academic supports, mentoring, recreation activities, arts and cultural enrichment activities, and system navigation for children and their families.
Organizations interested in applying are required to attend one Information Session. This information session will walk you through the application process and provide time for questions and answers.
Visit the ProsperUs website for full details and to submit your application.
