Educating Youth – $200,000
The Educating Youth program provides comprehensive, evidence-based youth programming that targets K-12 students who are at risk through three overlapping components: Summer Kids in Play, After-School Enrichment, and Y-Teens. The program gives young people the tools necessary to overcome social, mental, and emotional obstacles to succeed in school.
Health & Fitness Club W – $30,000
This program is designed for individuals who have never sought physical fitness before, particularly people who are low-income, struggle with mental illness, feel inadequate or embarrassed about their lack of physical fitness experience, and have one or more health issues (obesity, high-risk pregnancy, tobacco use, diabetes, diseases of the heart).
Supporting Youth Experiencing Trauma – $20,000
The program will address trauma experienced by youth in Knox County and will utilize the Support for Students Exposed to Trauma (SSET) Program, an evidence-based, best practice curriculum and a streamlined referral process for youth who have experienced trauma or exhibit trauma-related behaviors.
Victim Advocacy – $57,000
The Victim Advocacy Program is safety-driven to reduce risk, support victims, educate community members, and prevent domestic violence.
