Eleven of the nation’s leading philanthropies — including the Annie E. Casey Foundation — today announced a bold plan of action to maximize the potential of the private sector to improve life outcomes for America’s boys and young men of color. The plan is bolstered by $194 million in initial investments in key initiatives, including programs to enhance school learning environments and reduce the overrepresentation of young people in the justice system. These investments build on existing efforts by foundations to expand educational opportunities, increase access to technology and build pathways to jobs and economic opportunities in underserved communities.
