Raise DC: A Collective Call to Action
Raise DC is a cross-sector partnership of local stakeholders formed to promote a culture shift from competition over Washington, DC, resources to collaboration, in providing every youth with opportunities to succeed from cradle to career. We make our collective impact by:
- Using data as a flashlight
- Identifying effective practices
- Aligning community resources to fill gaps and spread what works
All participants have a shared vision for change, as well as a common understanding of the problem and how they will work to collectively solve it.
Raise DC's work focuses on:
Raise DC’s report card highlights cradle-to-career indicators (both academic and nonacademic) that are related to Raise DC’s goals and are critical to the success of DC youth. Tracking this data for Washington, DC, year over year allows Raise DC to guide its work, identify gaps, measure progress, and unite the community toward common goals.
