Grant Writer Request #03152022C.1.1

Primary Purpose:
To obtain funding to advance program in the mid-south by focusing overview of organization.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
Our organization focuses on reaching out to diverse youth and adults, particularly youth of color to get them civically engaged not only for the community but for themselves. Not all our kids will go to school. There is formal and informal education. I grew up down south and was raised on the farm where I picked and chopped cotton and types of farm stuff. Some people need to know that they have soft skills to not only get the job but to keep the job, how to work as a team, body manners, holding conversations. Some kids are not taught these skills because they are more attentive to their phones than themselves.

We offer a program to empower youth through civic engagement and creative expression. The rich tapestry of Black history is used to encourage young people to develop a voice, as well as soft skills that will prepare them for college and work. Students will work together using technology to create purposeful products like cookbooks, talent shows, informational boards, comic books, and community involvement newsletters.

Culinary and Musical Arts Series
We teach the kids many concepts. We utilize culinary, art and music. One concept is soul food. Some kids do not know and think that is just what black folks eat. It is more than that. It is about community, celebrating, it’s about connecting, caring, communication through oral traditions that are passed down. The youth come in here and write newsletters about the first black scientist, the black women, one time, we even went all the way back to Africa. This is because we make the mistake to think imply that black history started here, it did not. It started long before here
We are starting to request and seek funding from different Foundations to help support our Family Education & Outreach Program. This program provides adult English and U.S. Citizenship classes, an Early Literacy Playgroup, guided parent-child literacy activities, and family outreach support services to African American and immigrant families in TN. The need for English literacy is significant among the African population, with nearly 1,000 African refugees being resettled here between FY2017 to FY2021, and new families continuing to arrive. Overall, the population of African-born residents in Memphis is estimated at 7,973.
The Summer Reading Program will run from 3pm to 6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 6 weeks. Summer reading groups will focus on reading comprehension, vocabulary building, and completion of written Memphis Public Schools reading assignments. Following the reading groups, students can join one activity group of the following: dance, soccer, basketball, or art.

The Workforce Development Program will run from 9am to 11am on Mondays and Wednesdays and will focus on development employment skills, understanding of the employment processes, financial literacy. The course will be directly following by a service-learning component where students will develop a service project and develop skills learned during the course.

Culinary and Musical Art Behavioral Therapy
Our Culinary and Musical Art Behavioral Therapy (“CMABT”) project implemented a program of civic engagement within this population, involving the participants in research on community, education, and history. Research themes reinforced with culinary (Bakin-n-Makin) and musical arts in a process that is cohesive and therapeutic. Engaging in culinary and music arts can be a relaxing, calming experience that fosters camaraderie for individuals with mental illness. Don Elligan, Ph.D. records that music therapy is an essential tool to improve the lives of troubled youth. The use of sounds is used calm their imaginations and create positive behavioral change . This revolutionary therapy treatment and technique opens avenues of communication, thoughts, feelings, emotions, and goals, leading to the development of soft skills (i.e. teamwork, communication, problem solving, interpersonal, and work ethic) and efficiency. By providing an environment that bridges the culinary and musical components of this therapeutic process lead to team building, embracing diversity, obtaining jobs, and cultivating leadership roles.

GIS MAPP-Program
Students can map the places they spend time, their schools, the shops they go to – they can chart local places of interest or make a map of parks that they take their siblings to – anything can be mapped, and the topics will come from the students themselves – what matters to them. They can use these maps in their schoolwork, or use them to try and understand other communities – the sky is the limit!

MAPP-ing in the Community will use both Google Mapping services, which are free and accessible, as well as ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Online Services. These ArcGIS products, from Esri, will allow for more in-depth mapping and analysis by the students, but will come at a cost to UNITEY – hundreds of dollars per year
