Wyoming Community Foundation Supports Expansion
By Rachel Humphreys
The Wyoming Community Foundation has awarded Affinity Mentoring a $2,750 grant to support expansion to Godfrey-Lee Early Childhood Center in Wyoming, MI. This award will be combined with the support from Molina Healthcare, Steelcase Foundation, and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to:
- Recruit, screen, train, and match 30 mentors with a student
- Stock the Mentor Center with games, activities, crafts, books, and other resources
- Provide ongoing match support to retain and support students and their mentors
So far, 17 kindergarteners and first graders have been matched with a mentor, but there is still a need. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, apply here.
The Wyoming Community Foundation, a regional affiliate of Grand Rapids Community Foundation, evaluates local needs and opportunities and looks to fund projects that address the areas of art & culture, community development, education, environment, health, or social needs.
