DBAF Anchoring Achievement in Mexican Communities

Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation (DBAF) has established Anchoring Achievement in Mexican Communities, an initiative designed to improve the long-term educational and economic well-being of children, youth and families of Mexican origin in New York City. This effort will support “neighborhood networks” among community nonprofits, schools, libraries and others – anchoring them in communities as integrated hubs that provide access to comprehensive, high quality educational programs and services. Through a collaborative structure, the typical challenges to nonprofits of competition and siloed resources are mitigated, and meaningful collective action is made possible. DBAF will fund partnership models to:
  • Increase the availability and accessibility of high quality educational programs and services
  • Increase student and parent engagement in and completion of school and community-based learning activities
  • Improve academic performance and, where applicable, employment prospects
