Become a Program Provider!

Become an AfterZone Program Provider for Summer 2016!

The Providence After School Alliance (PASA) is excited to announce the opening of the Summer Scholars 2016 Request for Proposals.

PASA runs two different types of programs throughout the AfterZone Summer Scholars Camp day: a morning STEM program and an afternoon enrichment program.  For a complete overview of the daily program schedule, see Appendix A.

The morning program provides intensive (3.5 hours) experiential STEM based learning for a cohort of 28 youth, utilizing a collaborative teaching approach.  In order to lead the morning STEM experience, the community organization’s educator will be partnered with a certified Rhode Island teacher and an experienced youth worker, to create and deliver a robust inquirty experience for youth.  Organizations involved in the STEM morning program undergo extensive planning and training sessions that begin in March.  A complete schedule of PD and Training is available HERE.

Organizations accepted for the STEM morning programs will receive a $4,925 grant per program

The afternoon enrichment programs offer one hour activities led twice a week by a community organization that may be based in any field. All programs are held at a school site.

Program grants for the afternoon enrichment programs typically range from $500-$1,175.
