Catch the Next was one of six organizations which were awarded funds in the Trellis Foundation’s first-ever micro-grant award cycle. CTN received the funds for its “SteppingStones to Student Success” toolkit which is being developed by Dr. Yolanda Reyna and Dr. Dan Rodriguez, Palo Alto College Ascender instructors and CTN Leadership Fellows. The toolkit will be in English and Spanish and available to all of CTN’s campuses.
This funding request sought proposals in four focus areas: Coping/trauma; Race and equity; Access to supports during COVID-19 (economic, mental health, etc.); and DEI Taskforce initiatives. Awards prioritized projects generating deliverables to share field-wide.
