BRIDGEdotMN non profit partner Project for Pride in Living (PPL) has received a grant of $20,000 from Youthprise to package, promote and spread the proven digital inclusion model for adoption by other non profits in the Twin Cities.
Youthprise was founded by the McKnight Foundation to increase the quality, accessibility, sustainability and innovation of opportunities for learning beyond the classroom.
Sarah Koschinska, PPL Director of the Youth Development Program, believes that “BridgedotMN has become an important part of PPL’s youth programming for the past three years. It’s a powerful model that helps disadvantaged youth cross the digital divide. This challenge grant helps propel this vital work forward.”
“Youthprise is pleased to support this innovative collaborative to help youth build digital literacy skills that will be critical to their success in the 21st Century,” says Marcus Pope, Youthprise Director of Strategic Initiatives & Outreach.
