About this grant

This grant will enable MDRC to conduct an external evaluation of the funding and programmatic activities of the Mott Foundation’s Vulnerable Youth grantmaking portfolio. This review and assessment will focus on whether the strategies under the Vulnerable Youth portfolio are making progress toward improving the education and employment opportunities for dropouts and other underserved students. In addition to assessing progress, this review will document how strategies have been expanded in the field and how the Foundation’s work to inform policy, improve practice, and assess promising strategies influenced these efforts.
