EPN拨款关键术语和常见问题

关键术语

〇从摇篮到事业 Cradle to career is defined as a robust 教育 that ensures youth are set up for success and can reach their full potential. 从出生到生命的前20年, Cradle to career is the process by which supportive learning environments can maximize student learning and positively shape social and behavioral development.

〇围绕服务展开 包装服务被定义为具有两代方法. 我们的想法是,这不仅是一个帮助孩子的倡议, 而且整个家庭也可能面临影响他们如何运作的障碍. This is a long-term method with evidence-based practices that will work to dramatically improve 教育al outcomes. An example of this type of care in action can be seen in George Washington 社区 High School near IUPUI in Indianapolis. 全国社区学校的典范, in 2009, 100% of graduates were accepted to postsecondary 教育 due to intense wrap-around care services provided at the school. 服务包括现场牙科护理, 家庭翻译服务, 家长就业培训, 还有更多.

常见问题

这项资助将如何惠及爱丁堡大学的学生、教职员工?

The 埃文斯维尔承诺社区 (EPN) builds upon UE's long-standing commitment to understanding and serving the needs of the local community. 通过这项倡议, all of the UE family will have the opportunity to empower 埃文斯维尔承诺社区 residents to dream boldly. 每个人都将受益于我们在全国范围内的声誉和品牌知名度的提高. 这将使我们在未来的州具有竞争优势, 联邦, 还有私人基金会和公司资助的机会, 并与未来的学生区分开来. We believe UE is now the only college in the nation to be both a Promise Neighborhood host and an Ashoka 改变maker 校园.

“希望社区”和“希望地带”有什么不同?

在美国,“承诺区”和“承诺社区”是截然不同的举措, 两者都旨在提升弱势群体,但侧重点不同. 承诺区涉及更广泛的社区振兴, while Promise Neighborhoods target child and family well-being through tailored resources and services.

2016年6月, the city of Evansville received a 联邦 10-year Promise Zone designation to support its most at-risk, 但在城市核心的最有前途的社区. 承诺区是面临经济和社会挑战的特定地区, 与不同机构合作解决贫困等问题, 失业, 住房, 教育, 公共安全. ECHO Housing serves as the head organization and the City’s Department of Metropolitan Development as the lead partner. 另外25个机构, 非营利组织, and businesses assist in developing strategies and mobilizing resources to support the Zone’s initiatives.

与此形成鲜明对比的是, Promise Neighborhoods are community-based programs that focus on enhancing the well-being of children and families in disadvantaged neighborhoods. 这些举措优先考虑全面支持, 包括教育, 医疗保健, 住房, 家庭服务. They collaborate closely with local entities to disrupt the cycle of poverty and create pathways for children's success.

我们将收到多少资金?

作为房屋中介申请拨款, UE是主要的财务代理, 通过LE进行数据评估和可视化会议的承包商, EPN全职团队的雇主, 以及通过一系列项目提供服务的合作伙伴. UE的CIC将为承诺社区提供五名全职员工. 它的导演, 格兰特会计, 项目协调人, 销售协调员, 以及数据和项目评估经理, will work with Diehl Consulting (DCG) and 改变Lab students from a wide variety of disciplines interested in community surveying. 在新职位及附加津贴上,优衣署亦会获发间接差饷, 还有供应品(电脑), 等.为那些新员工准备的. 除了, 我们将获得资金与外部评估机构DCG签订合同,以处理项目评估, 访问数据库和培训资金,以协调合作伙伴之间的数据, and funds to contract with Leadership Everyone for Neighborhood visioning sessions as part of the continuous improvement plan. 我们也会收到“正义之旅”的资金, UExplorer, 跳板, 以及探路者奖学金和物资. 拨款将用作“改变实验室”教师的津贴, 项目经理, 还有学校的协调员, 还有那些项目的物资, 团队的年度专业发展从第二年开始. The funding will also be critical for UE to assist in providing travel support to get EPN students to events on campus, 开发EPN到UE的管道, 并获得专业发展基金,以实地考察其他承诺社区.

match和grant有什么区别?

匹配是组织为工作提供的内容, 奖助金是该组织将获得的资金. 美国能源部要求社区提供至少1:1匹配的30美元,000,000(合作伙伴一起超过32美元,000,000). 重要的是要注意,这不是每个合作伙伴1:1的匹配,而是整体努力的匹配. 有些伴侣可能比他们得到的多,有些可能比他们得到的少.

这笔拨款将如何影响创新与变革中心提供的服务?

CIC将在明年集中精力建立EPN的全职工作人员, but there are planning funds in the grant to assist with this; including a grant implementation consultant and HR consultants to help with a national search for the Neighborhood Director. The program funds the CIC will receive in future years will scale the programming it already provides including 改变Labs, 设计思考, 专业发展, 以及教师和学生项目的用品. The funds will support coordinators at each school to help scope out faculty 改变Labs and projects related to the Neighborhood and provide a stipend for a contracted 改变Lab manager so the initiative will have one point of contact. This scales the CIC’s capacity to serve our community while keeping the current team available for the on campus and in community work they already support and coordinate. The main impact will be in limiting the Center’s ability to take on additional larger-scale projects over the course of the next year, 但这个团队的适应能力很强, 并且已经在密切合作,管理工作流程,以尽量减少干扰.

如果服务主要提供给六所指定学校的学生和家庭, what is the direct benefit to students who live in the Promise Neighborhood but don’t attend one of the six schools?

而特定的学校则被要求作为重点学校纳入申请, wrap-around care coordination and universal services offered throughout the Neighborhood will impact children and families beyond the focus schools, 特别是由于埃文斯维尔的流动性挑战. 选择了人口普查区和社区, 但核心团队利用了学生和社区层面的分析. 这两个层次的分析使得对EPN有了更丰富的理解. 例如, 当对高中毕业率的学校人口数据进行检查时, the rates include students who live outside of the PN focus area and those families from all socio-economic backgrounds. Consequently, these rates do not accurately reflect the needs of students living in the neighborhood. 然而,邻域分析可以. 例如, the team discovered only 60 percent of students in EPN graduated from high school compared to 83 percent of students living outside the area.

大学社区如何才能最好地支持这项计划?

Be patient as the EPN team receives information and develops a system to communicate that to the partner organizations. 这是我们社区第一次有PN, 因此,基础设施建设将需要一些时间(并在拨款实施中进行规划)。. 如果感兴趣, 请阅读美国能源部网站上的相关报道, 查看更详细的执行摘要, and then contact either Derek (DM380) or Lisa (LA156) with ideas or to be placed on a list to get more information when 改变Lab funding arrives. 在登陆页面上张贴问题,以便开发和更新常见问题解答. 而项目需求将与学生合作开发, 老师, 和家庭在幻想会议期间, how those projects are scoped out will be developed by our faculty and students with the support of the CIC. 读完故事之后, 项目成果, 和总结, 如果你有一个项目的想法,你的学生可以进行,这可能会有所帮助, 请不要犹豫,与CIC联系.

补助金会否对大学的财政有直接影响?

作为埃文斯维尔承诺社区的财政代理人, 所有的资金都将流向大学. 所有与EPN团队相关的费用将由拨款资金支付. The University is providing match in the form of time and effort of a select number of existing positions that provide EPN programing such as CIC, 青年编程, and CDEI; support services for the EPN team; and youth programs for EPN targeted students. 拨款预算中的大学项目包括改变Lab课程和协调员, 夏令营, 正义之旅奖学金, CDEI运动鞋, 以及课后项目支持. 大学每年将根据我们确定的协商费率收取间接费用.
