About this grant

This grant will enable the Kalamazoo Community Foundation to continue to support a countywide partnership aimed at improving the educational supports and opportunities for out-of-school youth. Through this project, the grantee has led and convened a partnership of stakeholders in building a framework that addresses the issue of dropouts and disconnected youth in Kalamazoo.
