Collaborating Post-COVID to Serve the Whole Child

As in-person learning returns, educators, policymakers, and community leaders must now identify how to holistically support students after significant COVID learning disruptions. Students need more than a 4.0 GPA to be successful and a philanthropic collaborative in Chicago is using a “venture philanthropy” model to fund and scale innovative programs. The discussion will focus on which pilots succeeded, which ideas did not, and how leaders can learn from the multi-million-dollar Chicago effort.
