Innovia Foundation is excited to continue our partnership with The Zone Project and Ballmer Group on a three-year investment to support quality expanded learning opportunities for children and youth in northeast Spokane.
The Zone Project is a multi-sector initiative focused on safe and nurtured kids, thriving families, and connected schools and neighborhoods in northeast Spokane.
The Zone Project’s Expanded Learning Program (ELP) focuses on helping children and youth access quality educational, health and social-emotional supports that enable them to succeed through key transition years. To support the whole child and whole family, the ELP will work closely with Spokane Public Schools, families, youth-serving organizations and health, education and social service partners. The intention of this program is to support and align high-quality, out-of-school programming that is measurable and sustainable.
For the 2019-2020 school year, Innovia Foundation awarded $297,352 to organizations to support these efforts. For summer 2020 programming, $135,000 will be awarded.
