About this grant

This grant will provide partial support to the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition for the group’s education organizing work. The education work will focus primarily on: 1) deepening the leadership skills of parents and youth engaged in the organizing work; 2) more closely uniting and coordinating the youth and parent organizing efforts; and 3) winning local campaigns for school improvements especially in the area of additional facilities, small schools, school safety, school funding, and teacher quality. In addition, this grant will enable the organization to participate in the Foundation’s eight-site study exploring the contribution of education organizing to education reform efforts.
