Capacity Building

Join in solving the nation’s dropout crisis

Local communities bear the cost of the nation’s dropout crisis.  They must be part of its solution. In order for this to occur, states, communities, and school districts need to develop the know-how and approaches required to successful confront their dropout crisis and enable all their students to graduate prepared for adult success.

The Everyone Graduates Center will work to build local capacity to analyze the source of a community’s or state’s dropout crisis, develop effective solutions, and successfully implement and sustain them through direct consultation with communities, the development of guidebooks and toolkits, and partnering with other social change organizations in organized mobilization and outreach efforts.
