Summary

More than 14 million American children – the majority of whom are people of color- live in poverty with inadequate supports to thrive. As is evidenced by persistent gaps in educational equity, great programs can be beneficial for meeting distinct needs among students and their families, but chronically fail to produce scalable, population-level change. Based upon the experiences of PNI and Promise Neighborhoods from across the country, this workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to learn and apply tested strategies for redesigning opportunity back into their own communities through real-time coaching and tools developed for and in partnership with successful local leaders.
