Education

We invest in change through education because every child deserves every opportunity to reach his or her potential. When schools are a center of community, we transform the Bay Area’s potential in economy, health and a thriving community.
Wraparound Partnerships
Kids who participate in wraparound school partnerships typically improve their attendance rates, homework completion, and grade point average by 15%.
Parent Support
The three most accurate predictors of students’ achievement are 1) a home environment that supports learning; 2) families communicating high and reasonable expectations; and 3) family involvement in their children’s schools.
Early Childhood Programs
Girls who attend preschool are 2.5 times more likely to graduate high school than those who do not.
Community As Classroom
Children and youth who participate in community-based mentorships and apprenticeships have 20% higher high school graduation and college-going rates.
