Talent Development Secondary recently received a grant award from Capital Area United Way for its work in East Baton Rouge, La.
This award will support the work of Talent Development Secondary as the lead partner in Diplomas Now, an innovative model that brings together three successful nonprofits, Talent Development Secondary, City Year and Communities In Schools, to work with high-poverty middle and high schools to foster student success and growth.
Talent Development Secondary/Diplomas Now works in Broadmoor and Capitol middle schools in East Baton Rouge.
According to CAUW’s website:
Capital Area United Way has always successfully invested resources into the programs and partner agencies that are moving the needle and changing the face of the capital area. As our community’s biggest needs have changed, we too have changed.
In 2014, we engaged community partners (funded agencies and programs), community members and others from across the 10-parish capital area in meaningful conversations. They talked about their hopes, dreams and aspirations for the community. What current challenges we are facing and the solutions that we need to focus on to make the biggest impact in the Greater Baton Rouge community. With this insight in mind, we created a plan for our future. The result: Capital Area United Way’s impact model.
