Together with KIPP, a national network of open-enrollment, college-preparatory public charter schools, we created Future Focus, a college and career readiness program for KIPP students, and supported the rollout of this program in nine US cities. To date, nearly 7,000 students have received career skilling through Future Focus. Since 2011, Accenture has awarded KIPP nearly $6.8 million in funding and pro bono resources.
