The Weld Trust recently provided for the social and emotional support of youth in Weld County through two behavioral health grants to Soccer Without Borders and the Success Foundation Serving Greeley-Evans schools.
Soccer Without Borders helps connect newcomer refugee, asylee, and immigrant youth in Weld County through the sport of soccer to foster growth, inclusion, and personal success. The Weld Trust grant will enable them to expand their current program and provide more youth with mentorship, friendship, cultural sharing, and opportunities to establish themselves in their new environment.
The Success Foundation Serving Greeley-Evans schools is being supported to provide the much-needed services of a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). The RBT works with students who are experiencing significant behavior challenges that disrupt their learning and the learning of others. The RBT creates a behavior plan with each individual to help the student find school-appropriate ways to communicate their needs and function better in a classroom environment.
The Weld Trust is supporting behavioral health in Weld County in multiple ways including media campaigns, prevention services, direct intervention, and staff development, as well as social and emotional learning and support. These two impactful programs supported by The Weld Trust provide positive social and emotional learning for Weld’s youth.
