GradNation Wilmington Regional Community Summit
On December 1, 2015 we are hosting the GradNation Wilmington Regional Community Summit convened by UNCW’s Watson College of Education Dropout Prevention Coalition. This event is one of 100 GradNation Community Summits, sponsored by America’s Promise Alliance as part of the GradNation Campaign, with generous support from AT&T. America’s Promise’s goal for the community summits is to fuel local collaborative action to increase high school graduation rates.
Like our previous dropout prevention events, the focus is on awareness of solutions and what is working. At the heart of this work will be the Five Promises, the wraparound services that dramatically increase a young person’s chance of success: caring adults, safe places, an effective education, a healthy start and opportunities to help others. This event is absolutely free but you will have to register to make sure there is a seat saved for you. We expect teams of educators, non-profit and community organizations as well as parents, students, business and community members. The goal is to learn about successful programs in the region and develop action plans for area school districts.
Date and Time: December 1, 2015, 9 am- 4 pm
Place: University of North Carolina, Wilmington, Education Building Room 162
Lunch will be provided
