What Can You Do?
It will take a sustained effort from all of us to reach our cradle to career goals.
Active Leaders are needed. Here are some ways to get involved:
Businesses can champion education, encourage parent involvement, bring management expertise to other sectors, or mentor students by helping them explore careers through classroom and workplace experiences.
Educators can work with other cross-sector partners to devise curricula and teaching
practices that work to achieve the desired outcomes.
Nonprofits can collaborate to identify and implement best practices.
Faith-based organizations can reinforce communications, supply mentors, extend learning opportunities and offer family support.
Funders can encourage collaboration and align their funding strategies with the goals of THRIVE.
Parents can learn about child development, apply effective parenting practices, and foster
a love of learning in their children.
Civic leaders can consider educational impact in their decision-making.
