As summer has wound to a close, we've taken a bit of a break from blogging. As we gear back up for fall, please know we'll be back and as active as ever. In the meantime however, we do want to use this week to encourage you to check out the Raise DC Progress Report released just this morning.
Raise DC’s 2015 Progress Report provides a critical snapshot of the District’s progress in
moving the needle on shared educational and workforce goals for children and youth, ages 0-24. The findings are positive, with nearly 60% of the metric indicators heading in the right direction. Equally important however, the data illuminated in this progress report will act as a guidepost for our efforts in the District. Access to actionable data is key to ensuring quality services, effective funding and a culture of continuous improvement.
So take a look at the report, consider how this information can inform your efforts and if you haven't already, reach out and get involved in this key collective impact effort. By aligning efforts and resources we can truly move the needle on our shared goals. Every sector has a role to play in ensuring every child and youth in the District of Columbia succeed.
Youth-Friendly DC will be back to the regularly scheduled Wednesday posts. So be sure to check back in next week!e
