This grant will provide partial support to Editorial Projects in Education to provide an ongoing and independent resource to the field on issues of high school graduation via its Diplomas Count publication. In 2012, Editorial Projects in Education published the seventh edition of Diplomas Count that provided an in-depth exploration of high school graduation and the larger reform landscape encompassing high school improvement efforts, as well as the movement to a college readiness, access, and completion mandate. Recommended support will enable Editorial Projects in Education to publish the eighth edition of its Diplomas Count report and focus new research on the linked issues of high school graduation and college readiness.
This grant provides partial support to the Youth Transition Funders Group, a program of the Tides Center. This network of grantmakers was formed in 1997, to focus specifically on working to improve young peoples' transition into adult life as economically self-sufficient and contributing family members and citizens. The group offers professional development opportunities and provides a forum for networking, thereby strengthening the ability of grantmakers to build comprehensive grantmaking strategies for youth transition. In addition to its annual meeting, activities for 2001 include: bi-weekly listservs to educate the foundation community, bi-monthly conference calls, partnering with other affinity groups to serve vulnerable youth more effectively, and strengthening the working committee and recruitment efforts.
This grant increase will enable the American Youth Policy Forum to document and profile the options and efforts available to reconnect out-of-school youth in Flint and Genesee County. Using a similar case study approach that was used for the initial 12 communities profiled in the Reconnecting Dropouts to Mainstream Activities project, the American Youth Policy Forum will study and document the programs and policies in the Flint and Genesee County area to gain a greater understanding of the education and employment opportunities available to assist young people that have dropped out of school.
The Mott Foundation’s Pathways Out of Poverty program supports initiatives around the United States that seek to improve community education, especially for traditionally underserved children and youth.
