Out-of-School Time Grant

Out-Of-School Time Collaborative

SV2 has joined forces with the Sand 
Hill 
Foundation and The
 David and Lucile
 Packard Foundation to fund a
 cohort of summer school and after school program providers that emphasize academic success and college readiness for nearly 6,000 at‐risk middle and high school 
students in 
Silicon Valley.

In 
addition to grants, organizations 
will 
be 
able 
to
 participate 
in a 
learning 
community 
created 
to
 encourage 
partnerships 
and
 foster 
the 
sharing
 of
 best 
practices which 
will 
benefit 
academic
 programming
 and out‐of‐school services. 
By
 funding 
an 
entire 
cohort 
of
 organizations
 and
 bringing 
them
 together 
in 
an
 ongoing 
professional learning 
community, 
we
 believe 
we
 will 
be
 able
 to 
significantly
 amplify 
the
 impact 
of 
each
 individual grant, and 
allow
 both
 funders 
and
 Grantees 
to 
create 
a
 regional
 model 
for
 out‐of‐school 
time 
effectiveness 
that can
 potentially
 be
 shared 
and
 replicated 
throughout the
 country.
