Mission

We help enhance the professional development of high school students in underserved communities.

Notes from the nonprofit

We believe our Adopt-A-School program will help families, educators, and community leaders develop collaborative partnerships to best support the development of high school students living in underserved communities. These collaborative partnerships will improve access to comprehensive information, create a range of skills-based opportunities, and help students evaluate academic and career options to gain the necessary post secondary training or credentials needed to succeed.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our program goals are:

1. Increase student access to comprehensive academic and career-readiness software, information, and resources.

This comprehensive software will improve student's ability to develop academic and career goals; create
personalized career pathways; develop post-secondary plans; and connect with community education programs,
training opportunities, and employers during and after graduation from high school.

2. Facilitate student access to skills-based learning opportunities and employment opportunities.

Improving school, community, industry partnerships will improve opportunities for job shadowing, internships, career exposure, service learning, work sampling, apprenticeships, and paid employment.

Our strategy to accomplish our mission, vision, and program goals will be accomplished by developing and sustaining collaborative school, community, industry partnerships.

We believe collaborative school, community, industry partnerships are essential to helping students prepare for and pursue successful postsecondary academic plans, employment, and careers. In fact, recent research suggest that collaboration, under the right conditions, increase the probability for higher school completion rates and employment (Fabian & Luecking, 2015).

Data
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
