YOU are invited to join Better Together, a movement which aims to improve child and youth outcomes from cradle to career. Through common commitment and shared responsibility we can reinforce each others’ efforts rather than compete. We invite and urge you (and you and you…) to find your role, help students excel—we’re Better Together.

Better Together partners convene in monthly, open-to-the-public Workgroups. These collaboration develop innovative, data-driven initiatives to improve the educational and career outcomes throughout the three counties of Central Oregon.
