Diplomas Now leaders sign Memorandum of Understanding
with United Way Worldwide, a collaboration focused on
resource development as well as policy and advocacy.

Diplomas Now seeks to raise additional funds to sustain an ongoing, six-year independent evaluation of the model that will provide crucial evidence that will influence the way our nation approaches failing schools. The results of this rigorous study have the potential to leverage millions of federal dollars for this evidence-backed model. These funds will cover the private-sector cost of implementing Diplomas Now in 32 schools over the course of the evaluation. The PepsiCo Foundation already has committed $11 million toward the study. The stakes have never been higher, nor has the opportunity been greater than the potential of this study.

For more information about supporting Diplomas Now, please contact Charles Hiteshew, CEO of Talent Development Secondary, at or 410-516-7321.
