The Robert Bowne Foundation: Mission and Vision


In 1983, the Robert Bowne Foundation (RBF) intentionally focused its grantmaking on the field of Out-of-School Time (OST) Youth Literacy Education. The RBF aimed to help build, enrich, and support the ability of New York City community-based organizations to offer after school programs where children learn and flourish.

The Foundation’s vision of a thriving professional field of OST education guided its efforts to:

  • Build both the educational and organizational capacity of its grantees;
  • Support program evaluation as a way to strengthen and enhance afterschool programs;
  • Promote advocacy efforts at the national, state, city, and community levels;
  • Establish a national Afterschool Matters publication; and
  • Generate and disseminate research on community-based organizations serving youth during the out-of-school hours.

Youth Today is the only independent, internationally distributed digital media publication that is read by thousands of professionals in the youth service field.

Youth Today adheres to high-quality journalistic standards, providing readers with professional news coverage dedicated to examining a wide spectrum of complex issues in the youth services industry from legislation to community-based youth work.
