Call for Help: Those with Grant Writing Experience

In recent weeks, the North Star has been working with Reverend Vernon Williams from Perfect Peace Ministry (http://www.perfectpeaceministry.org/about.html) and a coalition of pastors from New Song Community Corporation (http://newsongharlem.com/) to create a Youth Computer Lab in New Song's building. The Lab would aim to serve all young people, particularly those without ready access to computing and internet service.

The costs of creating the Lab are, as you can imagine, significant. Reverend Williams and the folks from New Song are looking for members of our community with non-profit grant writing experience to help strategize and craft grant proposals.

From the start, the hopes of the North Star were to be able to create coalitions and partnerships with neighborhood organizations such as Perfect Peace and New Song. The effort to create a Youth Computer Lab represents just this sort of an opportunity.

If anyone has grant writing experience and is willing to volunteer their time and effort, please contact us at northstar@thenorthstarharlem.com. We will connect you to Rev Williams, New Song, and other volunteers working on this project.
