Brookline Teen Grantmakers Currently Accepting Applications

Academic Enrichment Activities

The Brookline Teen Grantmakers believe that all young people living in Brookline should have access to high quality out of school time opportunities and that academic enrichment programs that support in-classroom learning are vital to help students develop an interest and enthusiasm for learning. 


BTG is interested in supporting programs that utilize supplementary education to help youth achieve academic success and reinforce learning in the following subjects: English language arts and literacy; science, technology, engineering, and mathematics; humanities, history, and social science. The Brookline Teen Grantmakers hope that through these grants, youth serving organizations will be able to provide new or expanded opportunities for Brookline’s underserved populations and strengthen our community.

Funding Priorities

Grants are intended to strengthen and enhance existing programming or to pilot new approaches and ideas. General support proposals will not be considered. Proposals should be in the range of $1,000-$7,000. Applicants who address the following priorities are strongly encouraged to apply:
