About Pipeline Crisis/Winning Strategies:

Pipeline Crisis/Winning Strategies was established to engage the private sector in closing the social and economic divides for young black men. Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, Goldman, Sachs & Co., and Harvard LawSchool’s Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race & Justice launched the initiative to address the rising rates of school drop outs, unemployment, and incarceration that have significantly reduced the number of young black men in the pipeline to higher education and professional careers. Pipeline has since identified and is marshalling support for a range of “winning strategies” that have proven effective in combating the alarming rate at which young black men are slipping through the cracks.

 

About the Pipeline Early Care & Education Working Group:

The Pipeline Early Care & Education Working Group aims to provide young black males with the highest quality care and education from birth through kindergarten, at the very beginning of the pipeline. The Working Group, in conjunction with 

United Way
 of New York City, established the Winning Strategies Early Care & Education Fund which is currently supporting a model focused on providing intensive professional development to five child care centers in East New York, Brooklyn and ultimately informing policy reforms for quality improvement efforts and improved educational outcomes.
