The Act Six Leadership and Scholarship Initiative, an initiative of the Northwest Leadership Foundation, aims to equip emerging urban leaders to engage the college campus and their communities at home through a four-part strategy: recruit and select diverse, multicultural cadres of promising urban leaders; provide training during their senior year in high school to prepare them for academic success and develop them as leaders; send the cadre together to college with four-year full tuition scholarships at partner colleges; and provide support and ongoing leadership development opportunities. This is a summary of the evaluation, designed to determine which program components were working well, identify components essential to success, assess program outcomes, and analyze the program’s return-on-investment.
