What Works! is the Mitchell Kapor Foundation’s annual convening that highlights successful approaches used by our grant partner organizations and provides a forum for practitioners to network and strategize.
This year’s convening focuses on the College Bound Brotherhood. What Works! participants will learn from selected youth-serving practitioners and local educators about effective college-readiness strategies for young black men. Presentations will be conducted by leaders from current College Bound Brotherhood grant recipients.
