ACA Foundation Offers Grants to Assist Counselors Serving Elementary-School Aged Children

Sep 22, 2016
ACA member counselors working with elementary school-aged children can apply for financial assistance in purchasing educational or therapeutic materials. Deadline to apply is October 15, 2016. Special funding available for members in WV and LA working with children affected by flooding.
Under the Growing Happy and Confident Kids (GHCK) program, The American Counseling Association Foundation (ACAF) is soliciting applications from practicing counselors seeking financial support for funding interventions, initiatives, or outreach efforts directed at children in grades K-5. Specifically, the counselors’ work must be oriented toward increasing the emotional literacy of children and better equipping them to handle life’s challenges. Often times these “life challenges” manifest as bullying, prejudice, sexism, or academic-related stress.
 
 
NOTE: $5,000 has been set aside specifically to assist counselors in West Virginia and Louisiana working with school-aged children impacted by recent flooding.
