“We are beyond grateful for the Chi Biz Strong Grant Program to have included the opportunity for nonprofits to receive critical funding for operations,” said Jill Reid, Chief Advancement Officer, High Jump. “The grant funding couldn’t have arrived a better time, as we continue to expand our programs offered to 7th and 8th grade students with limited economic means. We will be able to provide academic enrichment and essential support needed to empower the youth because of the grant funding.”
Listen in to hear Nate Pietrini (Executive Director) and Yolanda Luna-Mroz (Chief Programs Officer) share the history and evolution of High Jump and how it blends academic enrichment with social and emotional development to help students thrive.
