The MacArthur-supported New York Community Trust announced nearly $1 million in grants to 12 nonprofits that participate in the Hive NYC Learning Network, a coalition of museums, libraries, after-school clubs, and informal learning spaces that create Connected Learning opportunities for youth. The fund has awarded $3.7 million in grants since it was started in 2011.
Digital Media & Learning
MacArthur is exploring how digital media are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. The goal is to make education more powerful for all students by creating more opportunities for more youth to engage in learning that is relevant to their lives and prepares them for success in school, the workplace, and their community.
