About this grant
The Ukrainian Step by Step Foundation works to expand and improve the community school model in Ukraine by establishing regional training centers, training trainers and introducing courses on community schools into teacher training institutes. The foundation also promotes democratic values among community school pupils; supports the development of community-based organizations that work in partnership with community schools; encourages youth civic activism; and facilitates the development of an informal network of community schools at the regional, national and international levels. This grant increase will enable the foundation to host an international conference on community schools. The majority of conference participants will come from Central/Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.
