Nine-Thirteen Sports Awarded 16-Tech Grant
By Nathan Wilson
The Near Northwest-based youth education non-profit, Nine13sports, was recently awarded a grant for their Kids Building Bikes program. The grant is from the 16-Tech Community Investment fund and programming will take place in a newly-constructed classroom in their facility located at 29th and the Canal.
This program was designed as an opportunity to allow students to work with their hands to learn mechanical aptitude skills. They also will learn other desired employment skills such as problem-solving, oral communication, perseverance, and attention to detail all of which will impress upon our students a career path mindset.
STEM lessons are introduced throughout the 16-hour curriculum that will be conducted for youth in the Near Northwest neighborhoods.
