⇒ Teacher Resource GrantsIn response to a private foundation's goal to improve public education and the teaching of science, PVF created the "Immediate-Response" Teacher Resource Grants Program. As a result of the success of this program, it is now available in 5 San Francisco Bay Area counties.
For the 2012-2013 school year, the Teacher Resource Grants are focusing on enhancing arts, special education, field trips, and after school projects. See Teacher Grants for a listing of our current immediate response teacher grants programs.
⇒ Programs for Foster Youth
PVFs has added new programs with our "Immediate Response" model,
serving children in the dependency system and emancipating foster youth. These programs meet critical needs of foster youth as identified by social workers, Court-Appointed Special Advocates, and juvenile court judges and attorneys. See Programs for Foster Youth for a full description.
⇒ Community Initiatives
Getting out of the office, listening to what people in grassroots agencies, schools, classrooms, juvenile halls and start-up community foundations have to say — that’s where we get our best ideas. PVF initiatives such as the Holy Family School in Redwood City, the Parent Involvement Worker Program in East Palo Alto, and the McClymonds High School Health Clinic in Oakland, came from excursions into the community. See Community Initiatives to learn more about our work out in the community.
