Prepared youth. Productive residents. Thriving communities: A Collective Call to Action
Raise DC is a public/private partnership formed to promote a culture shift from competition over District resources to collaboration, in providing every youth with opportunities to succeed from cradle to career. We convene and connect leaders from across sectors, use data to guide practice, advocate for positive policies, and define ways to repurpose existing time, talent, and treasure to advance efforts that produce results.
This first Raise DC Report Card reflects our collective effort to identify specific markers of success for children and youth as they transition from one part of the educational pipeline to the next. It also establishes a baseline so that we know concretely where we are and where we want to go as we work together to continuously improve how we support success for young people in the District, from the time they are born to the time they enter a career. Most importantly, it articulates our public commitment to you, to our children, and to our city.
