STRONG & KIND Summer Program Funding
NBA star Kevin Durant's foundation and KIND Healthy Snacks have partnered to launch a STRONG & KIND movement that aims to challenge deep-rooted stereotypes and redefine cultural perceptions of strength and kindness. STRONG & KIND seeks applications from summer programs to support specialized programming that teaches youth how to be STRONG & KIND in their own lives. An organization's 2014 summer program must expose youth to a variety of disciplines and holistic experiences, such as academics, arts (visual and performing), athletics, community and team building, healthy living, and nutrition and wellness. In addition, applicant organizations must submit a lesson and/or project plan that will bring to life what it means to be STRONG & KIND. Selected organizations receive up to $10,000. The application deadline is July 9, 2014.
