Public/Private Ventures (P/PV)

Legacy collection

Innovation. Research. Action.

After almost 35 years Public/Private Ventures (P/PV) has ceased operations. The organization leaves behind an incredible legacy of knowledge, including hundreds of research reports, case studies and evaluations about how best to improve programs and outcomes for children, youth and families. We are fortunate that P/PV has decided to archive its publications collection with the Foundation Center's IssueLab so that practitioners can benefit from this knowledge for years to come.

CORAL is an eight-year, $58 million after-school initiative aimed at improving education achievement in low-performing schools in five California cities. In addition to strategies, process and instructions, this toolkit offers a series of tools program staff can use to build the quality of their after-school program.
