A Force for Change
A Diverse Network of Leaders
Each of us brings unique strengths to this work based on our identities and life experiences. Here’s a snapshot of our 2018 corps diversity.
Pell Grant Recipients
Corps Members Identify as People of Color
First Generation College Graduates
Corps Members from California
We know that to continue building on the progress of our region over the past 7 years we will need to focus our collective effort in three areas.
Grow Diverse Talent and Systems Leadership
We are committed to growing the diverse Talent we need in education and focusing our work on systems change. While we have seen tremendous progress in the growing number of excellent classrooms and schools we know the work of the next 10 years must be about evolving systems to meet the challenges and opportunities of the future.
Inspire Fierce Advocates for Educational Equity
We are focused on inspiring leaders and champions across our communities to be deeply committed to the work required to make One Day a reality and this not only includes our staff, corps members and alumni but our donors and community stakeholders, business and civic leaders, and students, parents and families.
Prepare Students to Learn, Lead and Thrive
We believe that students can and must play a central role in shaping the world for themselves and all of us and to do this they must meet and exceed milestones that mark the path to economic mobility. Students will build foundational knowledge and skills, social capital and gain greater access to opportunities that allow them to lead and shape the future of the California Capital Valley.
