We Believe all children can reach their full educational potential regardless of race, ethnicity, or financial circumstance. Help us keep our Promise to our kids. Together we can ensure that all children in Marin meet the educational milestones that are critical to achieving a bright and successful future.
A CROSS-SECTOR CRADLE TO CAREER NETWORK
Marin Promise Partnership was formed so that every child, regardless of race, ethnicity or family income can reach their full educational potential. More than 100 schools, community members, nonprofits, businesses, and government agencies have come together as a county-wide, cross-sector, Cradle to Career Partnership to address Marin county’s persistent and systemic educational inequities. Together, partners are breaking down barriers, building relationships, changing systems, and improving lives.
CLOSING EQUITY GAPS
With the support of Backbone Staff, partners promise that by 2028 they will have closed educational equity gaps at every stage along a child’s Cradle to Career educational journey.
Marin's Unrealized Potential
Persistent inequity calls us to action
Marin, a county of 260,000 people with incredible natural beauty and resources, is ranked one of the wealthiest, healthiest, best educated counties in California.
Yet, systemic inequities in schools and communities continue to limit what’s possible for many children of color and youth living in poverty; resulting in some of the greatest disparities in the state.
This persistent educational equity gap is unacceptable. Marin Promise Partners refuse to settle for a world in which a child’s potential is dictated by race, ethnicity, zip code or circumstance.
This is why Marin Promise Partnership was formed. To close the educational equity gap.
CRADLE TO CAREER
Student Success Milestones
Marin Promise Partners have come together to align their individual programmatic efforts into a seamless system of support for all students. To do so they have agreed upon a shared set of key milestone outcomes all along a student’s educational journey, from cradle to career. While each partner plays a unique role in helping students achieve these milestones, together, with the support of Backbone Staff, they are holding each other collectively accountable to achieving the results for all kids.
Together we can accomplish what none of us can do alone – sustainable, equitable, systems change – now and for future generations.
