Goal Area 2:

The academic success of every child is supported in and out of school

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.

Trauma Informed Approaches

The Hanna Institute will be hosting a year long series of “Summit Sessions,” short 20-minute, skills-focused videos targeting schools and youth serving nonprofits to help them address and prevent trauma in the classroom and after-school settings. Particular emphasis will be on race-based trauma and the toxic stress from distance learning. All sessions will be online and free.

Equity in


The Equity in Education movement is made up of passionate leaders from many of the community’s high-impact nonprofits and social agencies dedicated to supporting parents and students in their drive to achieve racial equity in education. Core partner agencies include United Way of the Wine Country, Hanna Institute, and Cradle to Career Sonoma County.

SCOE COVID-19 Technology Fund

Thanks to generous donations from the Sonoma County Vintners Foundation, Bank of Marin, and others, the Sonoma County Office of Education (SCOE) has launched a COVID-19 Technology Support Fund intended to help school districts purchase the mobile hot spots, prepaid data plans, computers, and subscriptions to online learning plans needed to access and deliver distance learning.
