Carnegie Grant for CCP

The Center for Community Partnerships (CCP) has received a $300,000 grant for the next three years from the Carnegie Corporation of New York to study National Consortium on Youth Civic Engagement: Strategies for Advancing Democratic Education, Engaged Learning, and Active Citizenship.

Penn will assist the Campaign for the Civic Mission of Schools to integrate higher education into its efforts to develop state and national policies that support civic learning in K-12 schools. Penn will organize a series of workshops nationally, host a national conference, create a database and website as well as publish an issue of Universities and Community Schools focused on this topic.

The Campaign for the Civic Mission of Schools is a major Carnegie-supported initiative to increase the quality and quantity of civic learning in grades K-12. Penn and CCP will, in effect, be serving as the higher education linkage to this significant national effort.
