The Forum organizes, staffs, and evaluates meetings and workshops for the Scholars mentor-mentee program, the Distinguished Fellows program, and other grantees, including those working on intervention, measurement, or the use of research evidence as well as those employing mixed methods. In addition, the Forum serves as a resource and liaison for our work in the after-school arena. They help extend our efforts by developing and disseminating policy commentaries on specific topics of interest. The Forum also plans to work with Foundation staff to write articles for non-academic audiences.
The Forum for Youth Investment will use this award to maintain and enhance their capacity-building assistance to the Foundation.
