Port Chester, NY – This March, STEER was awarded a $25,000 grant from the Westchester Community Foundation to support five new students. The grant process was highly competitive and eligible to qualified nonprofits that support youth development to improve the quality of life for Westchester residents by connecting past, present, and future residents - making a healthy, equitable, and thriving community for all.
Programs funded by this grant awards include college readiness training including campus visits, application assistance, and financial aid planning; STEAM programs to inspire youth to become leaders in science, technology, engineering, art, and math; career readiness including internship programs and community job placement; afterschool and summer programs focused on robotics and computer programming; one-to-one mentoring for students and their families on a post-high school plan, and more.
It is only with a significant commitment to our youth that we are able to attain this type of funding ensuring the same impact and quality for new students onboarded to the organization. We wish to express a special thank you to the Westchester Community Foundation for their support of our mission!
This grant was made possible in part by the Westchester Community Foundation, a division of The New York Community Trust.
