Raise DC Launches New Website

Raise DC logoRaise DC is proud to serve as the District’s cross-sector ‘cradle –to –career’ collective impact partnership – driving better educational outcomes for our youth. With the strong support of key stakeholders from government, philanthropy, non-profits and the private sector we are focused on kindergarten readiness, school success, re-engaging youth who have become disconnected from school/work, college and credential completion and youth employment.  We are thrilled to launch our new website (http://www.raisedc.org) today.

Our new website details Raise DC’s work and impacts in the District. For those that have tried to explain what collective impact/Raise DC is  – the About Us page is the place for you. Check out Our Networks to learn about each of our goal areas or “change networks”, the partners involved, the work that they do and how you can take part in furthering our city-wide work. Who We Are gives you an idea of the wonderful people that support this community-wide endeavor, and Contact lets you get in touch with us. The most important place to check out is Get Involved, so that if you’re not already part of our collective impact movement, you can join us today.

Our new website will serve as the place for the most up-to-date news, data, and projects pertaining to Raise DC.  We welcome any feedback or questions (directed at info@raisedc.org) that you may have after perusing the site. We’re excited to share this tool with you, excited about the outcomes we’re furthering for youth and looking forward to having all of you become more involved.  Visit our website often — and follow us on twitter @Raise_DC!
