Sports4Kids National Model

Thanks to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Sports4Kids, an Oakland, CA, based non-profit, is seeking to reach more than 1 million more children with its successful model of safe and healthy play. This is a great opportunity to expand a successful program, which teaches positive behaviors through sports and playground activities.

The grant is for $18.7 million and seeks to reach 650 schools in 27 cities. For those interested in taking youth development to a larger scale audience, this is a huge step in the right direction.
