The National Center for Community Education: On the Threshold of a New Age.
Krajewski, Fran; Osowski, Val
Mott Exchange, v12 n1 Sum 1997
The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation has been involved in the community-school/community-education movement since the 1935 Flint Community Schools (Michigan) experiment led to fuller use of local school facilities for learning and recreation programs. The National Center for Community Education (NCCE) was established in the 1960s as a training component in support of the Mott Foundation's promotion of school-community partnerships. This issue of the Mott Exchange, the official magazine of the Foundation, contains four stories that describe the NCCE and its activities: (1) "A New Era for Community Education" provides historical information about the NCCE; (2) "Programming: Going, Growing Strong" describes three types of training workshops available to school professionals and nonprofessionals on school-community collaboration; (3) "Board, Staff Profiles" contains brief biographies of NCCE management and staff; and (4) "Eye on the Future--Tomorrow's Leaders Today" describes a new young adult leadership program in Flint.
