The grant is intended to fund new initiatives or expand programs relating to community needs, not subsidize existing programs, and will be presented in the Spring of each year. The deadline for application submission is December 6, 2016.

The Junior League of Greenwich proudly presented two 2016 Community Grant Awards to the Greenwich Alliance for Education and Kids in Crisis.
The Greenwich Alliance for Education will apply the grant towards implementing a new program, Mastering Math on Saturdays at New Lebanon School. This is a “parent and child” five-week instructional pilot. The goal is to encourage parent participation in their child’s math education during the course of five Saturday mornings at New Lebanon School.
Kids in Crisis will utilize the award to launch a pilot “social skills” program called Bucket Skills at three public elementary schools in Greenwich. Bucket Skills will be administered to two separate groups of five to eight kindergarten and first grade students for four-week sessions in three Greenwich public schools. The curriculum will be based on the nationwide “Bucket Fillers” program – the premise that all of us are carrying around an invisible bucket, and that being kind to each other and ourselves fills it up, and being a bully or rude empties it.
