Members of the Talent Dividend Network are invited to learn more about the Philadelphia's high-impact Graduation Coach Campaign.
The Graduation Coach Campaign equips and empowers adults to help the young people in their lives earn a high school diploma and succeed in college and careers, and creates opportunities for individuals and community organizations to become more directly involved in helping students on the path to educational success.

The GCC targets adults who have pre-existing relationships with young people and provides training, information, and support regarding effective means to engage youth, expose youth to options and develop goals, and provide access to resources. A key initiative of the City's Council for College and Career Success and a signature initiative of Mayor Michael Nutter, the Campaign operates in close working partnership with a growing network of community-based organizations including 16 Anchor Agencies.
The two-hour introductory session on May 31 runs from 9:30 – 11:30am EDT.  You can attend in person or via videoconference. Interested cities may follow up by attending a two-day conference this summer, focused on spreading the effective practices of the campaign.
