Creating the Foundation to Accelerate Results for Black Males
Author: Promise Neighborhoods Institute | Year of Publication: 2013
This document is Part I of a series of papers developed to help communities promote Black male achievement in their neighborhoods. Part I provides a results-based framework for Promise Neighborhoods to systematically evaluate and respond to the particular needs of Black male children in the community. Subsequent papers will offer programmatic and policy solutions Promise Neighborhoods can employ within this framework to sustain and enhance their impact on this population. Together, these papers form a guide geared toward using the Promise Neighborhoods model to coordinate educational, health, and community supports to help children succeed from the cradle to college to career. The Promise Neighborhoods Institute at PolicyLink produced this guide with assistance from the Leadership and Sustainability Institute for Black Male Achievement and funding from the Open Society Foundations Campaign for Black Male Achievement. This guide is applicable to any community working to improve outcomes for Black males. It can also be adapted for communities working to improve outcomes for other populations.
