The invitational conference “Enough is Known for Action: Ready to Employ, Educate, and Support Youth”, in Washington, DC on November 13, 2014 featured a National Briefing and call-to-action planning sessions facilitated by the Brandeis team from the Center for Youth and Communities (CYC). A webcast recording of the National Briefing is available.
This briefing was made possible by the generous support of The Walmart Foundation, U.S. Dept. of Labor/ETA leadership, and Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management.
With grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Social Innovation Fund, and New Profit, Inc., the Center is working with more than 30 national and local organizations to create a pathway to and through college for former dropouts by establishing partnerships between community-based education programs and community colleges. Please see our latest report on the study, “Creating New Pathways to Postsecondary: Evaluation of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Postsecondary Success (PSS) Initiative” (and Executive Summary).
