About this grant

The program goal is to foster civic engagement through the further development of community education in Russia. The grantee will increase the professionalism of community school educators and administrators; strengthen ties between federal and regional education authorities and the community school movement; encourage the development of school-based community initiatives; and promote more systematic information sharing across the Russian community schools network, including through the continuing development of a comprehensive community school Internet portal. The center will also focus on strengthening its own long-term sustainability as a leading community education think tank. Established in 1996, the Krasnoyarsk Center for Community Partnerships has successfully introduced and popularized the community schools model into more than 35 regions of Russia.
