Emerald Youth Sports – $50,000
Emerald Youth Sports serve children in Knoxville’s inner-city by being a catalyst for the development of a healthy lifestyle through the encouragement of physical activity and by providing a positive outlet for the use of time to redirect young people from poor choices.
Inner-City Learning Initiative – $90,000
Emerald Youth Foundation (EYF) is committed to help youth and young adults living in Knoxville’s inner-city reach their full potential and become leaders in their communities. Academic achievement is key for them to finish high school, complete college or further training, and find a good job or career. We propose to continue to provide academic supports such as after-school and summer programs, ACT prep, tutoring, post-secondary preparedness workshops, life coaches, etc. for elementary through young adults.
