NYC GradNation Community Summit

November 10, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Zone 126 has been selected to host the first ever New York City GradNation Community Summit in coordination with America’s Promise Alliance and AT&T. America’s Promise Alliance (APA) was spearheaded by Ret. General Colin and Alma Powell to issue a challenge to America: make children and youth a top priority. APA is the nation’s largest partnership devoted to helping create the conditions for success for all young people, including the millions currently being left behind. Zone 126 and APA are partnering to provide a forum for learning and exploring ways to meet the needs of low-income youth and families in New York City and across the country.
The GradNation Community Summit, themed “Strengthening Families, Supporting Communities,” will provide a day-long forum of speaker sessions, breakout workshops, and panel discussions to explore innovative approaches to closing the academic achievement gap and increasing high school graduation rates among students from low-income families. Come learn about topics including cradle to career strategies, collective impact, community schools, building safe places for youth, supporting a healthy start, and increasing parent engagement. The Summit will be completely free of charge for attendees.
