Proposal Description:
Purpose of the Request for Proposals (RFP)On January 14, 2008, The Children's Trust (The Trust) Board of Directors approved the release of this competitive solicitation for high quality prevention programs. The Children’s Trust invites qualified providers to submit proposals for prevention programs, developed from evidence–based, best practice models that promote developmental assets that focus on the following areas:
Early Child Development (Area I) encompassing cognitive, motor, social/emotional health and development; literacy and school-readiness skills; arts and cultural programming; and maternal/child health and safety for children ages birth to 5 years. These services should prepare children to enter school healthy, socialized and prepared and eager for formal education.
Parenting Skill-building and Support (Area II) Programs as defined by The Children’s Trust, for parents or guardians of all children and youth. The goals of these programs are to enhance parent-child relationships and strengthen families. The programs must be evidence-based best practices or adhere to guiding principles of effective programming in the parenting field. In addition, efforts that focus on increasing parental and community responsibility on behalf of children via advocacy and volunteerism programs are included in this area.
Youth Development (Area III) Programs that serve school-age children with a primary focus on adolescents, encompassing mentoring, social skills, conflict resolution/life skills, physical fitness and recreation, arts and cultural programming to encourage positive youth development and academic achievement, job training, and professional development. In addition, efforts that focus on increasing youth involvement in advocacy on behalf of children’s issues are included in this area.
Addressing health and safety aspects for all areas: Recognizing the integral importance of child health and safety to child development throughout the lifespan, The Children’s Trust seeks to fund prevention programs relevant to children and youth that may include aspects of health education and prevention/wellness. Encompassing broad goals to address the physical and emotional health and wellness of the whole child is encouraged.
