Strive and the Promise Neighborhoods Institute have recently released a white paper on strategies for aligning these two education efforts in communities across the country. The paper explores the similarities and differences between these two initiatives, offers a visualization of what alignment could look like, outlines the potential benefits for both efforts, and then delves into the five key areas for community leaders to intentionally connect. The paper also includes some very helpful FAQs.

Such alignment would be logical and powerful given the similarities in their conceptual underpinnings, namely utilizing data and community expertise to identify what works on the ground and matching those resources to the unique needs of individuals and families.
This is such an exciting partnership, and I hope that you share your thoughts in the comments below!
