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 developing an infrastructure that identifies dropouts and assists them in connecting to existing education and/or career training opportunities. During the next stage of this project, the grantee will deepen its work by exploring new alternative education pathways and designs and engaging new stakeholders in building public support to improve educational opportunities for students.
