Anchoring Achievement in Mexican Communities – Repository and Archives

    dv

    In 2013, Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation (DBAF) 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 supports “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 funded partnership models over four years 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.
