Springfield Summer Community Programming Receives A $3 Million Grant!

A $3 million grant for two years will be by Mayor Domenic Sarno and Springfield Superintendent Daniel Warwick on Tuesday. Summer and Afterschool community-based initiatives in Springfield Empowerment Zone will benefit from the donation.

“Our unshakeable attitude that ‘It takes a village’ is one of the City of Springfield’s most significant qualities,” says Mayor Sarno. We are sure our kids and families have a wealth of talents that can if given a chance. We are delighted to be a part of the town that helps Springfield families and children,” said SEZP’s executive director.

Matt Brunell and Eileen Curran, Co-Executive Directors of SEZP, said, “SEZP believes that all children should have access to stimulating experiences in their time outside of school.”

“Students emerge with more curiosity about the world around them, stronger ties to caring adults and supportive classmates, and a greater involvement with their larger community in this so-called ‘fifth quarter of learning,'” according to the study. Because of the potential of this funding, we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about it.”

The Biden-Harris administration’s dedication to expanding economic opportunities and ensuring environmental justice for underprivileged areas is reflected in its emphasis on workforce development and job training.

We have a chance to create a stronger America, including developing new, well-paying jobs, thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.” EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan said, “Today’s Brownfields Job Training Grants will equip over 1,000 people for new environmental occupations like these.

” As a result of this initiative, the environmental workforce will be bolstered, and communities that need it most will be transformed.

It will allow Brattleboro Area Middle School to extend its successful one-week summer program for at-risk 7th and 8th students into a two-week program. Kids’ academic, social, and personal achievement will be supported via engaging theme modules on issues of interest to the students through BEAMS service-learning projects and outdoor education curriculum.

Students in the afterschool and summer programs will be transported using these funds. It will let the most vulnerable children in one of the state’s most economically and “transportation-poor” communities take benefit of these two programs.

During a two-week bike ride from Bennington to Montreal and back, eight 9th through 11th graders will tour universities, study with teacher chaperones, and learn to work toward their objectives. Students in danger of dropping out of high school due to a lack of academic work consistent with their abilities will apply for this program.

Tutoring, summer food reimbursement, addressing a substantial transportation problem, and continuing a mini-Kindercamp to assist incoming Kindergarten pupils would all benefit from the funding. Because of the terrible poverty, a safe location for kids to go over the summer is critical in this area.
