Join us for this important conversation focusing on successful community/school partnerships and the best strategies for implementing these collaborative ventures.

Leaders in the field will discuss how their partnerships were generated and the components needed to form a successful partnership (planning, communication, training/professional development, curriculum, shared measurement/outcomes, etc.). Our panel will explore challenges, as well as the value these partnerships can add to staff and participants. Learn about paths of scaling initiatives to reach a larger network of schools/CBOs and how funders can best support and invest in these partnerships to assure their success.

  • The power of school/CBO partnerships in advancing outcomes important to both entities, including good youth development practice
  • Best practices in successful school/CBO partnerships that funders can look for
  • Potential challenges that funders may be able to address through the way they invest, convene, provide technical assistance, etc.


Representatives from:

  • The STEM Educators Academy (a project of ExpandEd Schools and New York Hall of Science)
  • A College Readiness Partnership (a project of CAMBA, Brooklyn College, and the School for Democracy and Leadership)
  • BELL’s Summer Learning work with the Community Schools
