LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville's youth will be getting a strong boost in their studies and their future.
The city of Louisville, Metro United Way and Jefferson County Public Schools have partnered to support out of school time programs that will emphasize student's studies outside of the classroom.
Joe Tolan, with Metro United Way, said they're excited to finalize the grant for out of school programs, saying, it's time to prepare all the youngsters to complete high school.
"We have thousands of youngsters who are engaged in constructive, well designed, well executed out of school time programs but we have many thousands more who are not and that's why we need to grow a really robust system out of school time programs," said Tolan.
Mayor Greg Fischer added, "The grant is helping the three partners target young people that are at risk of dropping out of school. Let's put the resources where they're most needed."
The Wallace Foundation granted $765,000 for a 4-year period to support the out of school time programs.
