My first grant writing experience

I am currently in the process of writing my first grant.  I am working with my husband who is the Director of Scoutreach for the Boy Scouts of America in our local region and we are trying to open a Technology Resource Center for at-risk youth in our area.  Many of the youth we work with have never had a computer in their home and have limited computer skills.  We would like to use this center to teach them skills that will allow them to be more competitive applicants when applying for jobs.  We would also like to use the center to help them improve their skills in other subjects, such as math, english, etc.  We plan to have games on the computers that emphasize skills in each of these subjects to allow them to have fun and enhance their skills in these areas.  We would also like to use the center to hold after-school camps and summer camps to give another place for students to get off the street and come and have fun while learning something new.  I am very excited about this project and hope that we are able to find funding.
