Cradle to Career Initiative

The CEO Council wrote a letter of support for a $30 Million grant
through the U.S. Department of Education that would create a
Cradle to Career Pipeline Solution within the 61605-zip code. The
Promise Neighborhoods theory of change focuses on placing
great schools at the center of neighborhood revitalization
efforts. Improving the educational and developmental
outcomes of children and youth in the nation’s most distressed
communities will transform those communities. The grant
provides a Family Resource Navigator to assist families to find
the services and connect them to the resources they need from
the birth of their child through the child’s entry into the workforce.
