We use the collective impact framework with guidance from StriveTogether to engage and align public and private community organizations that are already supporting children. We mobilize them to work more collaboratively and leverage their collective knowledge, expertise, and capacity to improve systems for children and youth.
The evidence-based collective impact framework allows organizations to build “civic infrastructure” so that all children receive a high-quality education. This approach to educational equity is one that requires communities to hold themselves collectively accountable for student success from cradle to career and to continuously improve their support to children by letting data drive action and decision-making.
We mobilize, convene, and facilitate
We align and leverage resources
We are data-informed
We have a common agenda and shared measurement systems
