Lilly Endowment Inc. announced recipients of its Counseling Initiative Planning Grants with 36 IUSA member districts among the grantees. The funding will help these school corporations take the first steps toward providing additional counseling to prepare emotionally healthy youngsters for continued success in high school and beyond.  Grants range from $8,302 to $50,000 and are intended as the first phase of a five-year effort to strengthen supports for students as they prepare for high school and post-secondary academics and careers.

Over the next three months the grant recipients will collect and analyze data, assess their current counseling programs, identify best practices, visit promising programs and engage with community partners and develop implementation grant proposals to fund their identified strategies. The goal is move schools closer to a comprehensive counseling model to address academic, college, career, and social and emotional needs of the K-12 student populations they serve.

As stated in their press release,  “The Endowment launched the Comprehensive Counseling Initiative for Indiana K-12 Students in September. Through a request for proposals, the Endowment invited Indiana’s public school corporations and charter schools to submit proposals for planning grants to help them learn more about the best practices for comprehensive counseling programs in Indiana and from around the country, evaluate their current counseling programs, and consider developing plans to enhance the quality and expand the scale of their counseling programs. “
