Congregations for Children (C4C) is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2023-24 After-School Program Grants. These grants were awarded to NCCUMC churches that planned after-school literacy and tutorial programs for low-income children to remediate and reinforce literacy and other academic skills that “address the educational needs of low-income children who are struggling to avoid falling behind their more affluent peers.”
Five churches within our conference received a total of over $17,000 in supplemental funding for their programs. We congratulate them, and we look forward to reading about their experiences so that other churches might be inspired to implement or expand their own after-school programs in 2024.
