UCF CREATE and partner Page 15 have been awarded a $100,000 grant from Walt Disney World Resort to create new workshops, summer camps and afterschool programs for K-8 students in Central Florida. This grant is one of five presented to nonprofit organizations throughout Central Florida.
The new programs will promote literacy and writing skills through creative activity. Starting this summer, Page 15 and CREATE will design and implement new curricula for “Writing + Animation” and “Writing + Podcast.”
Stella Sung, director of CREATE, says these programs will encourage creativity and wellbeing in children, while also providing an innovative environment for learning outside the classroom.
