  • Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This webinar highlights lessons learned from cities that participated in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Communities Learning in Partnership (CLIP) initiative.  The YEF Institute served as managing intermediary of this effort to help more low-income students obtain postsecondary degrees and credentials.
The CLIP initiative was designed to support and accelerate efforts of city leaders, community college and other postsecondary institution leaders, and their partners to promote postsecondary success.  Seven cities were selected to participate in the planning phase of the initiative and four cities - Mesa, Ariz.; New York City; Riverside, Calif.; San Francisco - received $3 million implementation grants as well as in-depth technical assistance over a three-year period.
Speakers include:
- Steven Frasher, Strategic Communications Specialist for Completion Counts, Office of the Mayor, City of Riverside, Calif.
- Sandra Naughton, Site Lead, Bridge to Success and Manager of Education Policy, Department of Children, Youth and Their Families, City and County of San Francisco, Calif.
- Naomi Story, Site Lead, Mesa Counts on College, City of Mesa, Ariz.
