Mission: The mission of the Faith-based Initiative is to develop social capital networks that support Minneapolis Public Schools' goal of closing the racial achievement gap.
Integrated Services and Support Model: The Faith-based Initiative is an integration of services and community supports that support the academic achievement of students through community and family engagement. Collaborative resources and social capital networks are shared between faith-based organizations and schools to build strong partnerships and networks with families. Faith-based partners and school communities also come together to provide support and services to the educational growth of all Minneapolis Public School students.
