Annie E. Casey Foundation’s LEAP Initiative: Improving Education and Employment Outcomes for Vulnerable Young People

The Annie E. Casey Foundation recently announced a new Learn and Earn to Achieve Potential (LEAP) Initiative (funded in part by a recent $7.5 million grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service’s Social Innovation Fund).  The LEAP Initiative is intended to increase employment and education outcomes for youth and young adults ages 14 to 25, particularly those who have been involved in the child welfare or juvenile justice systems or who are homeless.

Join the Foundation team from the Leap Initiative, headed by Patrice Cromwell, to:

(1) share your insights and lessons learned about effective practices for supporting vulnerable youth and young adults from your grant making; and

(2) learn about partnership opportunities to support this Initiative moving forward.

November 16:  3:00 pm ET/12 pm PT
