Our Partners

LEADE is partnering with educational leaders from Chicago Public Schools (CPS), Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), Oakland Unified School District (OUSD), Riverside Unified School District (RUSD), as well as key stakeholders in these communities. Together, with these partners, we are identifying valued civic learning opportunities and developing tools that will enable school districts to collect and analyze data on the extent to which different groups of young people have access to these valued opportunities.


The LEADE initiative is grateful to the Stuart Foundation for their support of our work. The Stuart Foundation is dedicated to improving life outcomes for young people through education.

We are also grateful to the John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation for their support. The Haynes Foundation is a leading supporter of social science research for the Los Angeles Region.

LEADE would like to thank the The Children First Fund: The Chicago Public Schools Foundation (CFF) for their support of our efforts in Chicago. The Children First Fund’s mission is to support CPS’ ultimate goal of ensuring that every child in every school is on track at every stage in his or her career to graduate prepared for success in postsecondary education and employment.
