2019 Social Innovation Summit: Pathways to Opportunity

March 29, 2019
Tutor Center Ballroom, USC Campus

 

The zip code in which one grows up should not be a primary determinant of life outcomes.

​Developing successful cradle to career pathways for families and children living in low-income communities is a critical component of the Price Center’s mission. The Price Center develops and disseminates research that explores new approaches to increasing opportunity for low-income residents through education, policies to support healthy and stable families, ​and equitable access to high-quality jobs.

​This Social Innovation Summit examined Pathways to Opportunity
through the lens of research and action focused in three different areas:

Educational Attainment | Strong Families | Re-entry
