The Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative staff traveled to Seattle last week to participate in the StriveTogether national convening!
Continuing our work to help all students in the tri-county region, we joined more than 500 community leaders from across the country. This year’s theme was Go Far, Go Together: Uniting in Pursuit of Equity for Every Child.
Keynote speakers included activist and educator Brittany Packnett and former Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden.
We attended sessions and workshops devoted to building a culture of continuous improvement, eliminating disparities, engaging the community, improving outcomes and leveraging existing assets.
StriveTogether is a national, nonprofit network of 70 communities –including TCCC — using a rigorous approach to accelerate progress and sustain success in education.
