Our Vision

Create aligned networks that provide equity, opportunity, and inclusion for every student in the Bay Area so that they will have a family sustaining wage by the time they are 25.

WHY?

  • The Bay Area needs a larger local talent pipeline and young people in the region need support in attaining family-sustaining incomes.
  • Business, community and education organizations are not coordinated together in building and growing a regional college and career readiness system.
  • The strategies and approaches that are in place around college and career readiness are not aligned nor able to scale.

WHAT?

Desired Outcomes Include: 

  • Create a backbone organization that sustainably coordinates college and career readiness.
  • Design college and career readiness efforts with the region's workforce needs.
  • Bring leaders across sectors together, and craft and hold a common vision for aligning resources.
 

OUR GOALS:

  • Cross system integration
  • Seamless pathways to college and career
  • Quality regional work-based learning and industry engagement for students
  • Community health, wealth, and prosperity
 

HOW?

We are using the Alignment USA's proven principles, structure, processes and technology. 

This is both a bottom-up and top-down approach. 

  • Cross-sector Alignment Teams organized by issue area or population identify strategies that will achieve measurable outcomes, implement pilots with community engagement and identify how to scale. 
  • Executive and Operating Boards align team efforts to long-range outcomes and address policy and resource allocations to create systemic change.
