Grants to this Grantee
for support of a research hub that focuses on youth organizing  
The National Education Policy Center, a nonprofit education research center housed at the University of Colorado Boulder, supports the Research Hub for Youth Organizing and Education Policy. In order to advance education justice, the hub conducts research and shares results and analyses with youth-organizing groups and coalitions. The goal of these efforts is to uplift and centralize the voices of marginalized youth to sustain a movement dedicated to improving education systems.
for a research-practice partnership to test theories of diffusion and scaled impact  
The University of Colorado Boulder’s CU Engage collaborates with communities, schools, and organizations to address complex public challenges. In a research-practice partnership with Denver Public Schools and Challenge 5280, the grantee will work across the school district to scale action civics. This partnership, called Transforming Student Voice, will benefit school districts by presenting an approach that can be readily adopted in other places and by introducing new theories about the spread of innovative practices.
