"The Education program aims to create an environment in which children and young people from low- and moderate-income families have access to a full educational experience that connects with family and community and leads to academic and economic success. We believe education, employment and community engagement are integral to moving people in low-income communities toward greater prosperity. The three pillars of our grantmaking program to put young people on a pathway to greater opportunity are: (1) Advancing Afterschool Success, (2) Beyond High School and (3) Special Initiatives. The first two areas enable us to increase access to high-quality educational opportunities and support systemic change to increase and improve the pathways to education and work. The third area allows us to support collaborative and cross-cutting projects across the Foundation’s program areas and to explore special opportunities with the potential to advance our objectives."
