StriveTogether National Leadership Council

StriveTogether and the Cradle to Career Network members are fortunate to have a National Leadership Council dedicated to help shape the strategic direction of this movement. The role of the National Leadership Council is to advise staff on the best possible strategy to make sure we collectively establish proof point communities that exemplify the power of this work and drive innovation in the field of building cradle to career civic infrastructure and collective impact overall. The National Leadership Council members donate their time, experience and expertise to support this work and have consistently advocated with national, state, and local leaders to advance our shared goals. Their input informs the work of the KnowledgeWorks Board of Directors that manages the overall implementation of StriveTogether.
