We began in 2008 as an after-school program, and have since grown into a full-time school that serves pre-k to 6th grade students, and a community development program that serves their mothers and other female guardians.

We are currently seeking a freelance Grant Writer.

Researching potential corporate and foundation grant opportunities, and applying to grants – Maintaining a calendar of grant deadlines -Drafting and assembling grant texts and supplementary materials
