A new generation of initiatives aimed at promoting achievement among young men of color has emerged in recent years, engaging schools and school districts, government officials, and private foundations. In 2011, NYC launched the Young Men’s Initiative–an ambitious set of programs across several City agencies designed to improve outcomes for Black and Latino males. The largest component of YMI’s education effort is the Expanded Success Initiative (ESI), which provides funding and support to 40 high schools to help them improve college and career readiness among their Black and Latino male students.
On March 26, 2014, the CUNY Institute for Education Policy will explore the promising and challenging aspects of ESI thus far, with the goal of sharing New York City’s experience with stakeholders both in other area schools and in other cities that are developing similar initiatives.
