GRANT HIGHLIGHT

North Regional Council grants $50,000 to Student Recovery Program of Weld County and Smart Start for Kids of Larimer County

The North Council has set its sights on education. To make community-wide changes in this area, the Council has funded two programs; Smart Start for Kids of United Way of Larimer County  and Student Recovery Program of the Community Foundation Serving Greeley and Weld County.

Smart Start for Kids is a United Way of Larimer County initiative that supports proven programs and strategies that ensure all children enter school ready to learn, and are reading at grade level by the end of third grade. The partnership works to place Navigators at community centers to serve as connectors between at-risk families and school readiness services in Larimer County. Each navigator is expected to serve 50 to 75 families at any given time.

The Student Recovery Program was developed to address the high dropout rate of Latino males in Weld County high schools. Student Recovery is a comprehensive wrap-around intervention program for at-risk Latino male students currently attending Greeley Central High School and Northridge High School. The Student Recovery Program is currently supporting five cohorts of approximately 20 students from their sophomore to their senior year.

In 2014, the Council intends to explore how to better serve the middle school demographic in Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties.
