GradNation Comes to Schenectady
The momentum of Call to Action caught the attention of an exciting national resource. Schenectady is one of only five cities in the state selected as a community summit host by America’s Promise Alliance and its GradNation initiative. General Colin Powell was founding chairman of America’s Promise. Today, it is the nation’s largest multi-sector alliance focused on the well-being of young people.
The GradNation initiative was launched in 2010 with a goal to achieve a nationwide high school graduation rate of 90% by 2020. And we are intent on doing that in Schenectady County!
