Dear Friends:

On behalf of the USC Price Center for Social Innovation, I want to wish you a happy new year. Last year, the Price Center engaged in a wide range of meaningful research projects, high-impact events, and educational programs. I know that 2019 offers similar opportunities, thanks to the dedicated work of individuals and organizations like you.

Thank you for all that you do to support the Price Center's mission to develop ideas and illuminate strategies to improve the quality of life for people living in low-income urban communities. We look forward to working with you in 2019.

The zip code in which one grows up is 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, jobs, housing, and transportation.

​This Social Innovation Summit will examine Pathways to Opportunity through the lens of research and action focused in three different areas:
Educational Attainment | Foster Youth | Re-entry & Recidivism
