Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

National Council for Community and Education Partnerships

Washington, D.C.



The council creates and leverages broad-based education and community partnerships to improve public education, raise academic achievement levels and increase access to higher education for low-income students. This two-year grant enables NCCEP to transition its Gear Up Alumni Leadership Academy, which engages low-income students to serve as college-access advocates, to a more sustainable operating model.
