About this grant
This grant will enable the Philadelphia Youth Network to continue to convene and support a citywide partnership aimed at addressing and raising the visibility of the dropout crisis. Over the past few years, the Philadelphia Youth Network has worked to improve the educational options and outcomes for out-of-school and underserved youth through Philadelphia’s participation in the Coalition of Community Foundations for Youth’s Addressing the Dropout Crisis in Our Cities project. Building on the work completed in this earlier project, the Philadelphia Youth Network will lead and convene the Philadelphia Youth Transitions Collaborative in its implementation of strategies and action plans to strengthen districtwide efforts that improve outcomes for dropouts.
