Cradle to Career Alliance: Collaborating to achieve common goals for student success

The Cradle to Career Alliance is a collaborative effort to bring together people from across the community to work on common goals that can put students on a path to life-long success.

Participants in the Alliance include teachers, parents, practitioners, service providers, agency representatives, professors, school district administrators, community college representatives, librarians, health professionals, business professionals more.  The Alliance is a nonprofit educational organization that is different from many other nonprofits, as it does not provide money nor direct services. The Alliance serves to bring stakeholders together to determine common goals and how to help everyone accomplish those goals.

C2CA follows the model of the Strive Network, a successful collaboration in Cincinnati that uses data to determine its path and document its success.
