Lofty Aspirations, Because Our Kids Matter
The potential of our children is our most valuable resource. Poverty cannot be a barrier to success and race cannot define opportunity. Education is the most effective ladder for children to reach their full potential.
Timeline of Fresno C2C History:
The partnership continues to grow and now includes members from 66 organizations across ten sectors. Two actionable and fundable plans. The preconception to 5 Blueprint for Funding and Advocacy and the Fresno Region College Pipeline are formally initiated to leverage the state of readiness C2C now has to execute well-informed cross-sector collaborative systems-level improvements.
The partnership expands to sixty-four members including superintendents from nearly all the school districts in Fresno County. The connection with The Children’s Movement of Fresno is strengthened. Work begins to develop comprehensive funding strategies in the preconception to age five and college enrollment and completion portions of the cradle to career continuum.
Fresno C2C becomes a fully established community-based partnership with a full-time executive director and strategic plan. The partnership grows to forty-three members from nine sectors.
Building on the work of Fresno Area Strive, the Fresno Cradle to Career Partnership provided the needed infrastructure boost. Leaders from nine sectors came together to focus specifically on the improvement of key educational outcomes.
