This grant will provide continued support to Lansing Community College for its High School Diploma Completion Initiative. The High School Diploma Completion Initiative provides students who have dropped out of high school between the ages of 16 and 19 with a chance to simultaneously earn a diploma and credits toward an associate’s degree and/or occupational certificate. Recommended support will enable Lansing Community College to integrate a work-based learning component within this blended high school-to-college model.
This grant will provide lead and partial support to Editorial Projects in Education to provide an independent resource to the field on issues of high school graduation through its Diplomas Count publication. In 2013, Editorial Projects in Education published the eighth edition of Diplomas Count. The publication provided an in-depth exploration of high school graduation and the larger education reform landscape. Recommended support will enable Editorial Projects in Education to publish the next two editions of Diplomas Count and focus new research and coverage on emerging issues in high school reform and college readiness.
This grant will provide partial support to the Youth Transition Funders Group, a project of the Community Foundation for the National Capital Region. This network of grantmakers was formed in 2001 to focus specifically on improving the transition of youth into adulthood. The group provides a forum for foundations to network and develop complementary grantmaking strategies to create opportunities for youth in transition. Key activities in 2014 will include elevating the dialogue on cross-cutting issues for youth, supporting funder collaborations, and expanding the network’s framework in the philanthropic and public sectors.
The Mott Foundation, through its four grantmaking programs, funds a variety of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and projects throughout the United States, which together receive about three quarters of the Foundation’s grant funds each year.
