Housed in the Critical Studies of Childhood, Youth, and Learning Program
To increase exposure and access to higher education and build sustainable and equitable partnerships across communities by linking Hampshire College's innovative pedagogy with community engagement efforts to provide creative, experiential learning opportunities for underserved youth.
Hampshire Youth Connect provides project funding in allotments of up to $500 for Division II and III work that directly engages with underserved youth in support of college access.
Examples of successful funding proposals from the past include: funding for training and supplies to support a student's classroom teaching, transportation costs associated with transporting youth to the Hampshire College campus and for trips to educational destinations in Western Massachusetts, and printing expenses for a guidebook intended for use by elementary school teachers.
Student funding proposal forms for the spring 2015 semester can be accessed here.
These proposals are due to Matt Haley at Mail Code HA or under the office door of Emily Dickinson Hall 30 by February 6, 2015 at 5 p.m.
