Join us to explore critical issues around New York City's scaling of community schools as a strategy for school improvement and community development.  The discussion will center on: the cross-sector promise of community schools in supporting communities, the vision and principles that drive community school practice, and the role of philanthropy as a positive, catalytic force to support innovation and incubation and achieve results.
Join leaders from various City Administration Departments, school and community educators and practitioners, and local and national philanthropists to address the following issues:
  • The promise partnerships: the why, how and what of Community Schools
  • Intersections with education, youth development, housing and health
  • Restoring community voice through Community Schools
  • The practice of Community Schools - what does "transformation" look like?  
  • The role of philanthropy in the Community School strategy - providing support, partnership and serving as a positive catalytic force


Designed for

All interested funders.
