As we continue to work for educational equity in Eastern North Carolina (ENC), our vision that all children in the region will attain an education that helps them seize their right to a higher education and prepares them for a life of real choices is at the forefront of every choice we make as an organization. This is a critical pathway to a more just and equitable ENC. In order to make this vision a reality, we have outlined the following goals:
- Enlist, develop, and mobilize as many as possible of our nation’s most promising future leaders to grow and strengthen the movement for educational equity and excellence. For 29 years, we have been driven by this mission, and we plan to continue this as long as there is a need for new teachers and leaders advocating for educational equity in Eastern North Carolina.
- In our lifetime, we reach the day when at least 95 percent of children growing up in Eastern North Carolina graduate from high school prepared for success in college and career, providing them the agency to choose their future.
- By 2026, 50 percent of our ENC corps members will be former students from our communities. We want our movement to be driven by the students who are currently being taught by our corps members. If our corps of teachers is made up of students from Eastern North Carolina, this will demonstrate that our corps members are building their students into the empowered leaders that the region deserves. These leaders from Eastern North Carolina will be driven to improve the outcomes of the students in their own communities, while still harnessing the impact of corps members who join us from other parts of the country.
