Stability of federal funds for Americorps programming
History of relationship between school and neighborhood.
Staff and funding at each school.
School District wide initiatives.
Varying levels of partnership availability.
Funding for community partners.

This project will show that in order to maintain organized, mutually beneficial partnerships in schools which support not only students but the surrounding community, the position of "community partnership coordinator" needs to be sustained and grow across other Philadelphia schools outside of the initial cohort.

This project will spark interest from private and federal funders in order to sustain growth and establish CPCs as
full-time positions within schools.
