About this grant

This grant will enable Resource Genesee to continue to support a countywide coalition aimed at improving the educational supports for out-of-school and disconnected youth. As a growing partnership of committed nonprofit, public, education, and human service agencies in Genesee County, the coalition has accelerated a community discussion on the issues faced by disconnected youth and how best to engage youth, parents, caregivers, and governmental leaders to produce better practices and outcomes for this population. This grant will allow the grantee to convene this coalition of 36 youth-serving agencies to develop strategies to ensure disconnected youth acquire education/work experiences.
