The Atlanta Results Count Leadership Program

The Annie E. Casey Foundation has a special connection and long-term commitment to child and family well-being through its Atlanta Civic Site. The Foundation is particularly focused on a set of neighborhoods in the southwest corner of the city called Neighborhood Planning Unit V (NPU-V), which includes Adair Park, Mechanicsville, Peoplestown, Pittsburgh, Summerhill and Capitol Gateway.

The Atlanta Results Count Leadership Program is designed to improve third-grade reading proficiency in NPU-V by strengthening the capacity of local leaders to focus on results, build public will around children and strengthen organizations focused on this issue.

Over a series of seven seminars, the program will convene up to 16 leaders to broaden their vision and refine the leadership skills critical to advancing a third-grade reading result agenda for NPU-V.
