August 3, 2017 – Cumming, GA – Next Generation Focus (NGF) has received a $20,000 grant from Perimeter Church. The incoming funding will support NGF’s expansion of SmarterMe® Academy and Summer Program in Gwinnett County, Georgia.
SmarterMe® Programs aim to help PreK-8 students from low-income families who are significantly behind in reading and math in their respective classes. SmarterMe® Programs provide students with subsidized tutoring on reading, mathematics, and other grade-appropriate subjects; students also participate in STEM enrichment activities. During the SmarterMe® Academy Program students attend sessions four times a week, on weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings during the school year. During SmarterMe® Summer Program students attend classes during the summer months to retain what they have learned during the school year.
“We are grateful for the support from Perimeter Church. Its grant will supplement our efforts in enrolling more students in Gwinnett County into the SmarterMe® Programs,” said Amy Sol, the Executive Director of NGF. “Next Generation Focus has had a long-standing partnership with Perimeter Church. We look forward to working with them more closely in the future.”
