December 2020 Updates

Hello Wayne County!
As we close 2020, we are continually impressed with our county and our residents. Collectively, we are doing great work. We look forward to how this plays out in 2021. Here are some December highlights. Our newsletter focuses on our two main pillars: Our People and Our Community. Please share with your family, friends, and colleagues. And encourage them to sign up.


Wayne County Foundation Challenge Match 2020

The 2020 Challenge Match was the largest to date in terms of dollars raised. Our community was amazing in supporting so many of our local nonprofits. Read more about it here.
Spring/Summer 2021 School and Community Partnership Grant

The School & Community Partnership Grant is designed to support collaborative efforts focused on three main college and career readiness priorities: 21st Century Scholars – Scholar Success Program; Family Engagement Programming focused on College and Career Readiness; and/or Pre-College/Postsecondary Professional Development.

Early Childhood Success Coalition

Starr and Vaile Schools in Richmond were awarded Paths to Quality Level 3 designation. This doubles the On My Way to Pre-K classes in Wayne County. This helps our kids be ready for school. Great work!

Employability Coalition

They are looking at a Career Awareness campaign for a select group of in-demand jobs in Wayne County. The campaign will start with some short-term credentialing efforts to increase our educational attainment numbers. They will be seeking community input. Look for this in early 2021.
