Coalition for Community Schools - Because Every Child Deserves Every Chance


Students at the Center 
Challenge Kickoff Webinar

The Coalition for Community Schools, Communities in Schools and StriveTogether have launched the Students at the Center Challenge, with support from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and the Ford Foundation. The initiative will award funding to communities that demonstrate the potential to move toward a student-centered learning system. This approach emphasizes the needs and interests of students over institutions, combining quality educational opportunities with health and wellness services, mentoring, college readiness activities and work-based learning experiences.
Through the Challenge, it is anticipated that planning grants of up to $150,000 will be awarded to approximately 10 communities that commit to changing how they align and expand their work to help students, particularly children of color and low-income children. At the end of a six-month planning period, some communities are expected to receive implementation grants and technical assistance, while others may receive capacity-building grants and support.
Join us Wednesday, November 1, 2017, at 4:00 pm ET for a kickoff webinar. Register here.
