The Aetna Foundation has recently awarded a $40,000 grant to a nonprofit in Prince George’s County that provides after-school programs.
Coverage from The Washington Post notes
GapBusters operates out of the University of Maryland Center for Educational Partnership — an old public school building in the East Riverdale community — and teaches local student engineering skills by repairing broken bicycles.
The grant will support services — including tutoring and college prep classes — offered at the GapBusters facility, which has grown in recent years as a community center for neighborhood middle and high school students.
(County Executive) Baker said the grant is an example of how his administration’s Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative is operating in poor communities.
