About this grant

The education-related work of the Eastern Pennsylvania Organizing Project primarily focuses on improving educational opportunities for low-income and minority students in the Philadelphia public schools. In addition, the project participates in Mott’s eight-site study on the contribution of education organizing to education reform efforts in low-performing districts and schools. This grant increase will support the increased costs associated with youth participation in the study.
