Help Bubble find new school partners!
The Bubble Foundation is excited to announce the launch of its application process for new school partners in the 2018/19 school year. Help us find amazing schools to work with next school year! More details are below and in the attached documents. **Applications for partnership with Bubble are due April 13.**
Bubble’s Work in Schools: Bubble partners with underserved schools free of charge to incorporate strong wellness programming and policies into their curriculum and culture. We build the foundation for healthy schools that empower healthy kids. This includes our pre-K and elementary programming in cooking and nutrition (EATS), gardening (GROWS), and fitness (MOVES). See the attached document for more information on Bubble.
Application Process: Submit an application for partnership by April 13th. Eligible school candidates receive Title I funding (targeted or schoolwide), demonstrate an existing commitment to wellness, and serve elementary grades only (pre-K through 5). Applications require: 1) Identification of Bubble Wellness Circle members in your school, and 2) Completed online application. Bubble also performs site visits with strong school candidates before making a decision on partnership.
If you have any questions regarding partnership with Bubble, please reach out to Ryann Dear, Program Manager, at email@example.com.

Hire or Provide Internship
I love this concept…maybe some organizations on this list might consider taking on one or more of these young people!
Techie Youth teaches technology career-skills to older-teens in foster care (kids without parents,) youth facing homelessness & other at-risk youth. The teens & young-adults who have graduated the program have learned a broad range of tech skills, and are in great need of an opportunity to prove their value to an organization and become computer-sector professionals who are financially self-sufficient, and who will not need welfare/social-services.
Can you, or someone you know, provide an internship or entry-level job to a Techie Youth graduate, in full-time or part-time role? If so, please email Barbara -at- TechieYouth.org
– Either entry-level jobs or paid-internships okay!
– Either full-time or part-time okay!
– Any location in NYC or Long Island (including Suffolk County)
– Roles must be in an office, IT “field-work” or other professional environment (not retail or home-based.)
– Roles must be focused on computers, IT or technology (in any capacity.) Internships can include labor-tasks as a minority focus, but the primary role must be tech oriented.

Stand Up For School Wellness!
In past years, hundreds of student participants in our poster contest have shown us what school-based physical and health education, physical activity, and wellness programs looked like to them. This year, it’s your students’ turn to think big and share their school health and wellness message across the City!
The new 2018 School Wellness Campaign Contest opens today, giving all K – 12 New York City public school students the opportunity to create a campaign or public service announcement (PSA) about a school health or wellness issue they care about. Think about an image, slogan, logo, song, or message they would like to see on a poster, bumper-sticker, campaign button, subway ad, TV or social media campaign, tee shirt, or…we can’t wait to see what your students stand up for!
Your school can win prizes including
The student winner in the song, spoken word, and video category gets to work with Hip Hop Public Health and professional producers to produce a free track for their video. Other winning students will receive free passes to health and fitness opportunities, and all student winners and runners up will receive a swag bag. Winning entries will be featured in the 2018-19 School Wellness calendar, on promotional items such as t-shirts, and on social media and the NYCDOE website.
Submission deadline: Monday, March 19, 2018.
