Hello DC Tri,

I am writing for your suggestions!

As you may or may not know, I work with ACHIEVE Youth Triathlon Summer Camps, a 3 year old program that just received 501c-3 status. Here in Washington DC we have 3 summer camps devoted to teaching nutrition and fitness through the sport of triathlon. The camps are free and are offered in at-risk areas where most of the youth would not have access to bikes/swim instruction. At the end of the 6-week camp all the youth compete against each other and the other camps in a USAT-sanctioned mini-triathlon.

We are hoping to grow the program to extend this opportunity to more youth, but in order to do so, we need to apply for funding, both nationally and locally.

If anyone out there has experience with this sort of thing and has any suggestions and/or leads for grants/foundations/companies/individuals that might be interested in supporting this program. Please contact me!

The website for more information is:

Best,
Michelle

From your friendly consulting / contractor community:

and

Federal grant heaven. The key for recovery.gov is to discuss your program as part of helping America recover.

If you are working with DC youth, try the DC Children & Youth Investment Trust Corp http://www.cyitc.org/

quasi-governmental org that provides funding for youth programs
