After-school and Summer Enrichment Programs

The Kauffman Foundation awards grants to nonprofit organizations that offer after-school and summer enrichment programs for Kansas City youth. An emphasis is placed on programs that serve youth in Kansas City’s urban core, aged kindergarten through high school.

These after-school and summer enrichment programs—offering a variety of tutoring, mentoring, and academic-enrichment activities beyond the normal school day—provide a channel of funding for youth-related projects typically considered to be outside the scope of the Foundation’s education and entrepreneurship areas.

Since 2013, an estimated 25,000 youth have been served by this initiative.
