    Moving Forward – Alumni Pursuing Their Highest Aspirations

    Moving Forward – Alumni Pursuing Their Highest Aspirations

    KIPP Public Schools have always been known for its focus on getting more students to and through college. Today, we aspire to lead the education sector in championing a broader view of success.  KIPP is changing the name of all aspects of our post-secondary work from KIPP through college, to KIPP Forward, focused on this broader view of life success, which is inclusive of college, but not limited or solely defined by it.

    Joining us to talk about the evolution of our approach to educational and career path counseling is Jane Martinez Dowling, Chief of External Affairs at KIPP NYC. Jane has been championing this work for more than 30 years, and since 1999, has been a leader in KIPP on how to best support our alumni.
