Accelerating Academic & Social Equity

Pathways to Academic Growth, Empowerment and Success
JFS’ Pathways to Academic Growth, Empowerment and Success (PAGES) – formerly Reducing Achievement Gaps – program gives the most economically and educationally challenged young school-age children and their families the support they need to succeed in school and in life.
