New Haven Promise Partnership; Literacy and the “CollegeCorps”

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

Education Week, as well as the New Haven Independent, New Haven Register, and Yale Daily News, covered an event held at Yale about the New Haven Promise Partnership.  That partnership will include not only College Summit, but also a broader “CollegeCorps.”  The CollegeCorps will have two components: one in high schools and one “in the community.”  

Organizations that are part of the Literacy Coalition of Greater New Haven – from Concepts for Adaptive Learning, the Jewish Coalition for Literacy, and Junta for Progressive Action to Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven, the New Haven Public Library, New Haven Reads, and Read to Grow – already are supporting reading and learning in New Haven (and beyond).  Colleagues in the Literacy Coalition look forward to participating in the broad community effort to help fulfill the New Haven Promise with city students and families.
