WHO WE ARE
The Horner Foundation is a family-based charity dedicated to partnering with community-based organizations that provide youth, aged 10-19, hands-on experiential learning opportunities through Out of School Time (OST) to foster positive youth development.
We work in 4 geographic regions, determined by where family members live, their specific interests and needs identified by the community.
All youth will be empowered to realize their full potential and become active participants in their communities.
All youth will have ample opportunities both inside and outside the classroom to experience a diversity of quality learning styles and frameworks.
All youth will be healthy, strong, and well-prepared for the 21st Century.

We anticipate that we will have an open call for proposals in January 2022; please stay tuned for more details.
