SHARED RESOURCE

Philadelphia Education Fund’s College Access Toolkit

PEF works to instill in students a sense of their own potential, to show them the opportunities of a college education, and to help them develop the skills they’ll need to be successful. This College Access Toolkit is a year-long checklist for students to use to help them stay on track as they seek postsecondary opportunities.

START THE SCHOOL YEAR RIGHT: SCALING SCHOOL-COMMUNITY COLLABORATION FOR STUDENT SUCCESS

October 4, 2022

We all know how powerful school-community collaborations can be… but how do you scale and coordinate them to address the needs of thousands of students in dozens of schools?

In this Solutions Forum, we heard the experiences of two organizations—a nonprofit and a large urban school district—that are seeking to do just that.

Presenters included:

~ Ashley Seiler (Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri), “Scaling Student Support: Coordinating Collaboration Among Multiple Schools and Community Partners.”

~ Sophia Rudisill Holmes (Baltimore City Public Schools), “Mentoring Matters: Seeking a Supportive Adult Relationship for Every Child.”
