Conversations will focus on place-based strategies in Philadelphia, New York City and Washington, D.C. and include: key strategies from a middle school college access pipeline, career-enrichment programming during afterschool, and a new framework for ensuring quality and coordination in cross-sector partnerships that support career development.
