In 2012, a group of dedicated leaders from the tri-county region came together to focus on our community’s efforts for improving educational outcomes. Knowing education is key to the quality of life and the economic success of the region, we committed to a vision where every child will graduate from high school prepared for either further education or a career in the modern workforce.

Our region is fortunate to have countless partners already invested in this vision. From school districts using innovative instructional techniques, to businesses offering apprenticeships, churches providing mentors, community groups helping with homework, and non-profits and volunteers working directly in our schools, every day countless initiatives are joining with parents and teachers to help children learn and succeed. The Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative (TCCC) is a community movement supporting these partners in a “collective impact” approach to achieving a shared community vision.

As partners, we’re committed to aligning efforts and working together, rather than in isolation. Through collaboration, we know we can achieve more. In dozens of regions throughout the country, collective impact has led to improved educational outcomes, and it holds great promise in our community where so many are committed to helping every child succeed.

Our aspirations are ambitious, yet we are confident in the will and the ability of this community to turn this vision into reality. Our entire region shares the responsibility for making sure every child succeeds, and we hope you’ll join TCCC as we rise to this challenge.
