Futures Featured in Jason Kelce’s Eagles Education Season
Thank you, Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles and the The Philadelphia Citizen, for this week’s “Eagles Education Season” article featuring Philadelphia Futures! The article highlights our new PACE Scholars program – a partnership formed with PACE (Philanthropy and Community Engagement), which was founded by producer/director and Philadelphia native Mike Tollin. Our PACE Scholars program serves students at Northeast High School and focuses on students entry to highly selective colleges.
The Philadelphia Eagles are also investing in our work in other ways. We are excited to announce that Philadelphia Futures was selected as the recipient of a $20,000 grant from the Eagles Social Justice Fund. We are grateful to the Eagles community for their outstanding commitment to reducing barriers to equal opportunity in education, and we will use this investment to launch our new Strategic Plan in 2020 and expand our reach to more students in the city.
