The Boys & Girls Club: FBR Branch

While school buildings were forced to physically close as COVID-19 grew rampant, many working families did not have the space or capacity for their students to thrive while learning virtually. The Boys & Girls Club’s FBR Branch of the Greater Washington area provided a safe space for those students to learn virtually, while also providing extracurricular activities for the students to engage with. This socially distanced, safe space was referred to as the Distance Learning Hub.


BAC’s Education Equity grant was used to:

  • sponsor 10 students to have seats in the Boys and Girls Club Distance Learning Hub; 

  • purchase STEM related materials and resources for students participating in their Distance Learning Hub.

The Live Movement

The Live Movement has been working behind the scenes to develop an after-school program for high school communities in SE & NE, DC to further educate the youth through grades 9-12. The purpose of this after-school program is to empower Black youth through a Black-centered curriculum designed to help participants to design a community centered project by the end of the school year.  As a previous recipient of the Business Equity Grant, the Live Movement was able to incorporate as a non-profit organization in DC.

 

As an Education Equity Grant recipient, the Live Movement will be able to:

  • become a tax exempt organization which will make them eligible to become an after-school program provider among DCPS and public charter schools.

  • develop curricular materials, purchase reading materials & local transportation for field trips.

The Community Enrichment Project

This past summer, CEP ran the Digital Media Summer Internship for the second summer. This program was created to celebrate youth voice. The Digital Media Internship program was created to provide youth that possess an interest in digital media an opportunity to gain hands-on experience by allowing them to create a youth-led platform that will allow them to share their thoughts and research on various local social justice issues. Interns engaged with professional podcast hosts, journalists, social engineers, and other media experts to learn more about the field.

BAC’s Business Equity Grant was used to:

  • support six Black youth from wards 7 & 8 in DC to complete the Digital Media Summer Internship program;

  • Provide stipend for Digital Media Instructors.

  • Purchase equipment for digital media production.
