New York Life Foundation: Aim High

  • February 01, 2021

The Aim High grant program, funded by the New York Life Foundation and administered by the Afterschool Alliance, supports out-of-school programs serving middle school youth nationwide. The focus of Aim High is to help economically disadvantaged eighth-graders reach ninth grade prepared to succeed in high school by supporting after-school, summer, and expanded learning programs. This year applicants should describe how their programs will support youth in the transition to the ninth grade and how they are providing academic, social, and emotional supports to youth during the pandemic. Funded programs must serve a high percentage, at least 75 percent, of low-income youth. In 2021, the one-year grants of $15,000 will focus on supporting programs in their racial equity and social justice efforts. The two-year grants ($50,000 or $100,000) will focus on supporting programs in enhancing direct services, technical assistance, capacity building, and their efforts in continuing to serve youth while facing the challenges of the pandemic and beyond.
