Calling all nonprofits, community leaders and agents of change: The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recently announced a new Call for Proposals for Forward Promise, a $9.5 million initiative that focuses on innovative, community-based projects working to strengthen health, education, and employment outcomes for middle school- and high school-aged boys and young men of color. The Foundation will award 10 grants of up to $500,000 each to support projects with preliminary evidence of impact in school discipline, dropout prevention, mental health interventions, and career training.
RWJF is particularly interested in hearing from projects focused on AAPI boys and young men – so get applying! And good luck!!
