GCC Wins Full After-School Programs & Counseling at JFK High

In May GCC held a 125-person "Listen, Act, Win" action with Cleveland Schools CEO Eric Gordon at JFK High School about GCC's 2017 education agenda.  Victories from the action include: John F. Kennedy Eagle Academy and PACT, with an estimated total of 650 students, will have full after-school programming with arts, music and athletics; trauma teams will be created for John F. Kennedy Eagle and PACT schools to deal with issues like the opioid crisis and street violence; and the Downtown Education Center, the school inside the juvenile detention facility, will now be able to provide summer learning for approximately 220 students.
