Safe & Sound is hosting a Technical Assistance Workshop for youth development organizations that may want to apply to become Safe Place afterschool programs in 2014.

The TA Workshop is planned for Fri., Aug. 30 from 9:30 am - 12 Noon at the Goodwill James O Wright Center, 6055 N. 91st St.

Now in its 15th year, Safe & Sound has partnered with youth-serving agencies to improve neighborhood quality of life through a community engagement strategy of positive youth development.  Applicants can apply for grant funds in the amount of $20,000 or $40,000 to offer safe environments that foster pro-social orientations and promote healthy behaviors among youth.

Call Angela May at 414-220-4798 or email amay@milwaukeehidta.org to register for the TA Workshop.  To review the 2014 Safe Places Initiative Request for Proposals, visit the Safe & Sound website.
