About this grant

This grant will enable the Center for Law and Social Policy to promote federal and state policies that will, over time, increase the proportion of young people who at age 25 have a high school diploma, a post-secondary credential, and are employed in jobs with career advancement opportunities. In the next phase of this effort, the grantee will continue its work to improve the education and labor market outcomes for disconnected youth, especially youth of color and those residing in communities of social/economic distress.
