Cradle to Career Framework

The experiences children and youth have along their educational journey influence their long term success and ability to contribute to their communities.

The Cradle to Career framework is a vision for improving education, social, and community outcomes for all of Central Oregon beginning at birth, continuing through K-12 education and into post-secondary education or training that leads to a meaningful career.

 Collective Impact Approach

Our Collective Impact approach challenges us to work in chorus, rather than isolation. Through cross-sector collaboration, our efforts bring the hope and promise of large-scale impact, increased efficiency and effectiveness.

Successful Collective Impact initiatives typically have these five conditions that together produce true alignment and lead to powerful results. From cradle to career, our initiatives are built on the collective impact approach to align our new and emerging efforts and bring about meaningful change.

Better Together

Working together to increase the number of students graduating from high school, continuing their education & training after high school, and ultimately beginning work in a career they find meaningful.
