Welcome to the Virginia L. Grant Foundation
Incorporated in Louisiana in 2007 in response to challenges faced by post-Katrina youth, the Virginia L. Grant Foundation offers academic remediation, life skills training, job training, and student advocacy to high school students.
The youth of this nation are our future, and they need us now, more than ever. The amount of homeless and disenfranchised youth is on the rise, as are the mount of homicides and deaths amongst this population. We must invest in our youth to empower them academically, physically, and spiritually, so that they can in turn assist us in rebuilding our communities and strengthening our nation.
The Foundation’s academic remediation program was created to ensure that students past high school exit examinations and receive the necessary training to pass college entrance examinations or enter job training programs. The Foundation’s Life Skills Training program was created to provide the skills necessary in several areas of a student’s life to take them from a state to dependency to total independency – to assist students in finding their way. The Foundation’s job skills training program was created to offer alternatives to college in such professions as administrative support, building and construction trades, healthcare, technology and sports and media. The student advocacy program was created so that Foundation Life Management Staff can stand for students whose parents or guardians can not stand for them due to poor health, work or other pressing demands, and most importantly to ensure that Foundation youth served are in healthy, thriving, safe and secure home, school and work environments.
What we attempted to do in developing the broad range of products and services you will find in this website, is think of what could possibly happen to a student through the course of completing Foundation programs, and to create as many safety nets as possible for the students served. With this in mind, we hope that you will find your visit to our web site so enriching that you will be incented to think of just how you can make a difference. Please forward any suggestions to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you wish to join us in our efforts, please feel comfortable visiting our donate page and see how you can serve as an Intern, Mentor, Sponsor, or Volunteer. .Additionally, the Foundation’s staff is comprised of continuous learners. Should you like to make a suggestion and/or recommendation for us to consider or right size our programming, please send these to email@example.com.
And of course, please do visit us again.
Unlike many other foundations, the Grant Foundation generally does not make grants to outside organizations. The Grant Foundation directs its financial resources to its own programs, both domestically and throughout the world. This commitment to the Foundation's programs means that while Ms. Grant recognizes and supports an array of humanitarian causes, the Foundation does not redistribute its resources to provide grants for outside projects.
If you are interested in seeking a donation, we strongly encourage you to research and contact one of the many philanthropic organizations that provide grants for private and public use.
