About Expanded Success Initiative
The Expanded Success Initiative (ESI) uses new ideas and creative solutions to tackle the educational achievement gap and increase the number of Black and Latino young men who graduate high school prepared to succeed in college and careers.
ESI is an educational component of the Office of the Mayor’s Young Men’s Initiative (YMI) and is supported by Open Society Foundations. YMI is the nation’s most comprehensive effort to tackle the broad disparities slowing the advancement of Black and Latino young men.
As part of that comprehensive effort, ESI:
- works and conducts research in 40 public high schools that have shown promise in reversing this trend;
- develops and launches new high schools specifically designed to fully prepare Black and Latino young men for success in college and careers; and
- scales-up college advising training city-wide with the goal of reaching all high schools in the system.
