POVERTY IS NOT DESTINY

OUR COMMUNITY-BUILT GOAL


By the Class of 2020, WE WILL increase by 50% both the graduation rate of Tacoma Public Schools students and those who complete a college degree or technical certificate. Success will require measuring and closing gaps in access, opportunities, and achievement for all students from cradle to college and career.

WHY IT MATTERS

More than two-thirds of the experiences and learning opportunities that shape a child’s life occur outside the classroom. Graduate Tacoma aligns with parents and educators in a community-wide approach that helps ensure every child has access to quality learning opportunities.

ONE COMMUNITY:
A BETTER WAY FORWARD

OUR MISSION


Graduate Tacoma is building and strengthening Tacoma’s collective impact movement to help EVERY child achieve success from cradle to college and career by aligning goals, data-to-action strategies, resources and community partners.

HOW IT WORKS

It takes everyone working together - parents, educators, and the community - to help every child achieve success.
