Our new education cause areas are:
|Early Childhood Programs and Services |
Early Childhood Programs and Services include nursery schools, kindergartens, and/or other education services that provide foundation-level learning and/or literacy for children prior to entering the formal school setting.
|Scholarship and Financial Support|
Scholarship and Financial Support organizations support and enable students to obtain the financial assistance they require to meet their educational and living expenses while in school. This cause includes organizations that financially support education, including school foundations, alumni associations, student service organizations, and booster clubs.
Special Education organizations provide services, including placement and individualized programming, instruction, and support services, for children and youth who are gifted or have disabilities that require appropriately modified curricula, teaching methodologies, or instructional materials in order to learn.
|Adult Education Programs and Services|
Adult Education Programs and Services organizations focus on leadership and/or professional development for adults. These programs typically operate outside the formal educational system and provide an array of opportunities for adults to expand their knowledge in a particular field or discipline. Adults are encouraged to explore and develop skills in a new area of interest, learn English as a second language, or complete their high school education.
|Youth Education Programs and Services|
Youth Education Programs and Services include organizations that provide programming, classroom support, and/or instruction to school-aged students regarding a variety of disciplines, including art education, outward bound learning experiences, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), and other classroom programs that enhance formal education. Postsecondary programs are included in this cause and typically offer formal preparation for semiskilled, skilled, technical or professional occupations for college-age students.
|Education Policy and Reform|
Education Policy and Reform charities promote and provide research, policy, and reform of the management of educational institutions, educational systems, and education policy.
