Help With Grieving: The Dougy Center for Grieving Children, part of the nonprofit National Center for Grieving Children & Families in Portland, Ore., has produced a pamphlet listing ideas gathered from its work with more than 12,000 children, teenagers, and their families since its founding in 1982. “How To Help a Grieving Child” is available at no cost for single copies and at a minimal charge for bulk orders.

The center’s pioneering model for assisting children and teenagers coping with the death of a family member has been featured on ABC’s “20/20" and has inspired a training program that has led to the model’s replication at sites across the country and throughout the world. There are now programs, for example, in Ireland and Rwanda, as well as in Japan, Germany, Canada, and the United States.

Requests for free single copies should be accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope and sent to the Dougy Center at 3909 S.E. 52nd Ave., PO Box 86852, Portland, OR 97286. For orders of 50 to 99 copies, the charge is 30 cents each; for orders of over 100 copies, the charge is 25 cents each. Information is available online at www.dougy.org.


After-School Ideas: Educators and community activists interested in looking at innovative programs nationwide that seek a safe and productive haven for children after school should be aware of a bimonthly publication from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.

For More Information

Further information is available at www.mott.org, or from the Afterschool Alliance, PO Box 65166, Washington, DC 20035; or online at www.afterschoolalliance.org. The Mott Foundation’s publication request line for the United States and Canada is (800) 645-1766

Each issue of the newsletter Making Afterschool Count profiles several outstanding examples of such programs. Many of these have been made possible with the help of grants and technical assistance available through the federal 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative. In 1998, the Mott Foundation entered into an unusual private-public partnership with the U.S. Department of Education to help support the initiative. To date, federal grants are supporting programs in more than 3,600 schools. That number is expected to grow to more than 7,000 this year.
