Students working on homework with assistance from Staff at Lely Super Kids Club in Naples, FL.

New Horizons of SWFL is pleased to announce it has received a $23,421 grant from the Collier Community Foundation. These funds will support tutoring, mentoring and character-building programs for under-resourced K-12 students in our community.

At Super Kids Club, elementary students receive after-school tutoring and mentoring at a trusted club located near where they live and go to school. Volunteer tutors help students with their homework and build relationships with students that encourage students to stay in school. In the summer, Super Kids Reading Camp helps these students overcome summer backslide by enhancing their reading skills and preparing them for the coming school year.

“We are honored to partner with the Collier Community Foundation in our mission to equip our students with tools that will help them succeed both inside and outside the classroom,” New Horizons of SWFL CEO Dr. Linda Cunning said. “With these funds from the community, students in Collier County will have a safe place to go while building their confidence and improving their grades.”

The Collier Community Foundation awards annual grants through a competitive application and review process. Selected organizations receive grant dollars from the Community Impact Fund. This Fund is made up of donors who believe in the Community Foundation’s ability to identify and grant to the community’s most current needs.
