Educate | Connect | Amplify
Preparing all children and youth for success by educating the community, connecting partners, and amplifying approaches that work.
GOAL AREA 1:
Every child enters kindergarten ready to succeed
Cradle to Career aspires that every Sonoma County child enters kindergarten ready to succeed, a predictor of academic achievement in the later grades. Optimal early childhood development, prenatal to age 5, is critical to school readiness, including early brain development, dental health, social emotional wellness, nurturing caregivers, and access to high quality early care and education.
GOAL AREA 2:
Every student is supported in and out of school to succeed in college, career, and life
Cradle to Career believes it is a moral and economic imperative that we support the academic success of all students in Sonoma County. By providing more relevant and engaging learning opportunities, giving students additional support during key transitions, and developing early warning systems to help at-risk students, more Sonoma County youth will succeed academically and in their life beyond school.
Cradle to Career Sonoma County (C2C) is a cross-sector organization whose membership includes representation from early childhood, K-12, and post-secondary education, as well as business, non-profit, and philanthropic partners.
All children and youth reach their fullest potential at every stage in life.
