StriveTogether supports communities to eliminate disparities and change the outcome.
THEORY OF ACTION
Continually evolving with lessons from network members, the StriveTogether Theory of Action™ supports communities building the civic infrastructure necessary to transform the systems that shape opportunity.
Our theory of action provides progressive milestones rather than a prescription for change, which allows local context to guide the framework. The milestones inform necessary collaboration of cross-sector leaders from systems like education, housing, health care and more to get better results for youth and families.
We have partnered with Equal Measure since 2015 to evaluate the impact of our guiding framework. By following the progress of 14 communities using the theory of action for three years, Equal Measure determined the StriveTogether framework is making a positive difference. The study provided insights and validated that communities embracing the theory of action are making measurable progress improving outcomes.
