we work

StriveTogether connects communities across the country, converting local change into national impact.


join the movement

The Cradle to Career Network unites people who want every child to grow up in an equitable world.

People who value collaboration and have the perseverance to pursue change. People who gain wisdom from success and fail-forwards. People who are willing to share that new expertise with community leaders across the country because — together — it’s possible.

StriveTogether provides customized support, leadership development opportunities, resources, and tools along the way.

When we are willing to work not with community but in community, that is when transformation is possible.”

Stacey Abrams

Former Georgia state legislator and author

members of the cradle to career network receive:

Peer-to-peer learning opportunities as part of a national network of community leaders
Tailored coaching and support to tackle complex challenges and accelerate results.
Webinars, resources and tools, shared through our online member platform and network-exclusive newsletters.
Opportunities to build new skills, including collaborative improvement, Results Count™ leadership development and strategies for racial equity and inclusion.
Access to learning opportunities, both in-person and virtual.
Invitations to the Cradle to Career Network Convening and other network-exclusive events and trainings.

To join the Cradle to Career Network, communities complete a baseline assessment of their systems of support for kids and families. This assessment measures progress against the initial benchmarks of the StriveTogether Theory of Action™. Communities that meet the initial benchmarks are invited to join.

If your community doesn’t yet meet the criteria, we can support your path with resources and connections to similar communities. StriveTogether also offers customized coaching and support.
