2021 Promise Neighborhoods National Network Conference

Senior researchers Joy Zacharia and Donna Wilkens will attend this national conference focused on Promise Neighborhoods and Full-Service Community Schools.

The U.S. Department of Education is sponsoring the 11th annual national Promise Neighborhoods Network Conference. The conference will focus on Educational Equity in Action and is designed for communities committed to increasing neighborhood access to excellent schools, family and community support, and cross-agency coordination to prepare students for success in college and their careers.

The conference will be held entirely virtually and will bring together members of the Promise Neighborhoods network, including the Full-Service Community Schools program. Attendees will learn about and build capacity for successful place-based interventions and connect with fellow practitioners and leaders in the field.
