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.
