Achieve Escambia is a collective impact partnership that brings together parents, educators, business owners, health providers, faith-based leaders, community organizers, residents, philanthropists, government employees, first responders (both civilian and military) and elected officials to significantly improve cradle to career outcomes.
To do this, Achieve Escambia creates the space to have authentic dialogue, rooted in data and action, where the needs of children, students and families are prioritized.
We are grateful to steward this work on behalf of the community. And we are proud of our unique role in fostering collaboration across sectors to make lasting change countywide.
How we influence change is both innovative and research-based.
We maintain a strong leadership structure that brings senior community leaders together regularly to support the work on the ground where practices must improve. We emphasize data- sharing, relationship-building, shared learning, conflict resolution, commitment to action, follow-through and continuous improvement. The alignment we build daily between practitioners, leaders and investors is built on best practices from our national partnership with StriveTogether and our state partnership with the Florida College Access Network.
We know this is not easy; if it were it would have been done a long time ago. It takes a strong, independent organization to bridge systems together, challenge the status quo and create lasting change. Achieve Escambia is building the trust to drive momentum and accelerate action in our community.
