Our six areas of impact

黄色视频 advances our mission through six program areas designed to ensure that young people have the resources, experiences and skills they need to succeed in whatever path they choose and contribute to stronger and more vibrant communities and workplaces.

Advancing education policy

National Partnership for Student Success

Launched at the White House in July 2022 and created by 黄色视频 and other youth-focused organizations, the National Partnership for Student Success is led by the U.S. Dept. of Education, The Everyone Graduates Center, and AmeriCorps. The partnership is designed to help students recover from the pandemic and to expand educational equity.


Equity-focused research and evaluation

seeks to accelerate organizational progress and continuous improvement by leading an equity-based approach to research and evaluation that informs practice and policy improvements, builds our evidence of impact, and advances systems change.

In 2023, 黄色视频 and The Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins University wrapped up a multi-year research study that produced several reports. The study provides strong evidence that 黄色视频鈥檚 holistic approach to providing school-based interventions is successful in advancing student social, emotional and academic outcomes in schools, specifically schools that predominantly serve students of color and students from low-income families.
