Northfield Healthy Community Initiative

Focus Area: Youth Development

Grant Amount: $15,000

Located in Northfield. NHCI is a citywide collective impact initiative that has been operating in Northfield for eight years. PRIMEtime is NHCI’s network of free afterschool and summer programs for Northfield kids who do not have access to other out-of-school time activities. PRIMEtime serves more than 1,400 children ages 5-18 annually. More than 75% of the children are from low-income families, and more than half are Latinx.

Grant supports hiring a program coordinator who will lead two of the elementary afterschool program sites to help double youth participation at those sites and build stronger outcomes for youth using lessons learned from their highly successful third site, at Greenville Elementary.
