Workshops Help Recruit Faith-Based And Community Organizations To Make Sure No Child Is Left Behind
The No Child Left Behind Act provides faith-based and community organizations with grant opportunities through several programs, including Supplemental Education Services, Safe and Drug Free Schools Mentoring Programs, and 21st Century Community Learning Centers. From after-school programs to weekend computer labs, from early reading to family literacy, there are many opportunities for faith-based and community organizations to help ensure that no child is left behind.
In an effort to promote these grant opportunities, the U.S. Department of Education hosted a three-hour workshop in St. Louis today -- the eighth in a series of similar workshops around the country -- during which faith-based and community organizations learned about opportunities to become successful providers of supplemental educational services.
