Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Boise

Total Budget: $19,810

Areas of Focus: Peacebuilding and conflict prevention, Basic education and literacy, Community economic development

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: To provide leadership training to 75 low-income youth in Boise, Idaho


This grant would be used to implement Everyday Leadership at three Title I, low-income schools (Garfield, Whitney, and Koelsch Elementary Schools) within the Boise School District. Approximately 75 students would benefit.

The goal of the program is to increase the odds that that low income youth will succeed scholastically and professionally by equipping them with life skills (leadership, teamwork, communication, cooperation, conflict resolution, and decision making) and building their self-confidence.

This is a collaborative effort uniting (1) the schools'teachers and principals, (2) Treasure Valley YMCA instructors, (3) Boise School District Directors, (4) BIGS from Big Brothers and Big Sisters of SW Idaho, and (5) Rotarians from Rotary Clubs of Boise Metro and Boise Sunrise.

Rotarians play a central role in organizing and facilitating the project. In addition, about 20 Rotarians would meet with the students to lead discussions, serve as cabin monitors and assist in leadership exercises at the camp, and provide logistical and transportation assistance throughout the school year.

Historically, the program has been very successful. Grades have increased; behavioral problems have decreased; and many of the participants have gone on to accelerated learning programs in junior high school.

Your project summary needs to be a short sentence that explains the project. It should provide information about what activity is being funded, who is benefiting from the activity, and the name of the location of the project or activity, including the city or country. For example, "Five computers provided to schools for children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia." Please fix this, and then resend your grant for signatures.
