Welcome to the launch of the L.A. Compact's first bi-monthly newsletter!
Since 2008, the L.A. Compact has convened cross-sector stakeholders to work together across siloes in pursuit of three big, systemic goals:
- All students graduate from high school;
- All students have access to and are prepared for success in college; and
- All students have access to pathways to sustainable jobs and careers.
Today, 17 working groups (and counting!) are engaging hundreds of partners to improve cradle to career outcomes through the power of collective impact. We hope this newsletter will help shine a spotlight on this important collaborative work that seldom makes headlines. Each edition of The L.A. Compact Connection will include a short feature story, timely Compact workgroup or partner updates, and links to relevant news and research. We look forward to your feedback on how we can best utilize this newsletter to share the collective work of L.A. Compact partners.Read more
