          • Reading at grade level by third grade, as evidenced by a significant narrowing of the achievement gap for disadvantaged youth, particularly boys of color;
          • Graduating from high school ready for college and career, as evidenced by a closing of graduation rate achievement gaps for disadvantaged youth, particularly young men of color;
          • Completing and access to postsecondary education or training, as evidenced by an increase of disadvantaged youth, particularly young men of color completing Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, or college credit courses while in high school;
          • Entering the workforce successfully with middle skills jobs, as evidenced by disadvantaged youth, particularly young men of color having work access to internship experiences while in high school; and
