About the Research

MNPS and Vanderbilt will collaborate with community partners to develop equity strategies that support the district’s focused outcomes and foster a shared, citywide accountability for the well-being and success of Nashville’s youth.

The Working Group will seek to develop the research architecture for understanding the roles that various city agencies and community organizations in Nashville (in addition to the the school system) play in supporting the city’s youth. Ultimately, the group aims build a “youth master plan”, or an evidence-based map for how these groups can work together to foster successful youth outcomes and confront inequities.
