Say Yes to Education

New York, NY



Say Yes fosters collaborative relationships between city and county governments, school districts, parents and students, business, foundations, faith-based institutions, and postsecondary institutions to improve student outcomes and college attainment. This two-year grant will support the planning and initial creation of the Center for Community Success, which will assist cities that are grappling with how to sustain city-wide education and economic development initiatives. The Center will provide thought leadership on best practices and ideas for comprehensive approaches to improving the postsecondary pipeline and will offer advisory and technical assistance services to support capacity building in cities.
