Mentoring Grants Available For Local Groups

The Foundation will award six $25,000 grants- one in each of New York City's five boroughs, and one in Westchester County- to organizations with an existing model youth mentoring program that offers young people sustained relationships with caring adults and/or peers who serve as positive role models.
Applications will be accepted online from October 15 to December 10, 2007, and reviewed and awarded on a competitive basis. Awards will be announced and made in March 2008.
