Move2Learn Grants
  • Tens of thousands of kids get active in programs across Alexandria through Move2Learn Partner Grants and Teacher Mini-Grants.
  • Partner Grants provide funding for before, during, and after school movement programs at ACPS schools.
  • Teacher Mini-Grants fund ACPS teacher-identified classroom movement materials to add movement into their classrooms.

“I did some rearranging to accommodate more flexible seating and movement. I can’t wait to add the rest of the items from the grant!” –ACPS Teacher

In the Community
  • Neighborhood playgrounds build communities and meet the needs of our youngest citizens, as well as the after-school and weekend crowds.
  • Past playground builds have transformed the Hume Springs community in Arlandria and the Taney Avenue community in the West End.
  • We also completed a neighborhood-changing community playground at Four Mile Run in Arlandria.

Part of our organization’s history includes building playgrounds in underserved communities with the highest percentage of kids under 5!
