CRF Encourages Service-Learning Efforts with Mini-Grants

Thanks to a generous grant from The Maurice R. Robinson Fund of New York City, CRF awards mini-grants of up to $500 for K-12 service-learning projects designed to address serious community issues.

Robinson Mini-Grant <a href=""></a> projects are chosen because they address problems and needs arising within the broader issues of poverty, hunger, environment, mentoring children and youth, crime and safety issues, and aging. With the aid of the mini-grants, students develop problem-solving and citizenship skills that will help them become effective citizens in a democratic society while they give to their community.

This year, 28 service-learning projects were awarded grants. The 2005-2006 Robinson Mini-Grant application is due October 14, 2005. For more information, visit the web site <a href=""></a> or contact Katie Moore [email protected] at 213 316-2104.
