Scholarship Plus Support

Of course, money alone isn’t the answer. Evolve502 creates a path for students of all ages as they work their way toward college. Evolve502’s unprecedented partnership of public and private agencies delivers the support students need to be successful in school, career and life.

Cradle to Career Support

Evolve502 uses data to strategically identify priority areas where JCPS students head off track. Then we coordinate with our city and community partners to connect students with the targeted support they need. Using existing resources, we create an effective and efficient system that provides broad-scale impact in Jefferson County with services such as:

  • Extended Day/Year Program
  • Early Childhood and Preschool
  • Family Support Services
  • Workforce Training
  • Enrichment Activities
  • College Access/Persistence Support
  • Tutoring Services

JCPS Backpack League

Evolve502 is partnering with JCPS to deliver summer reading and math learning opportunities to keep students on track. More than 2,000 students participated in summer programs in 2019.

Education Data Platform

Evolve502 is working to integrate education data with the United Community platform, making Louisville the first community to braid together data from education, health and human services. With the support of predictive analytics software and United Community, we will be able to flag students who fall off track and match them and their families with critical interventions.

“I love the work of Evolve502, because the mission of Evolve502 aligns with my personal mission to work tirelessly to ensure ALL students have the best possible opportunity for a successful educational journey!”
