GRADUATE TACOMA

Today, Graduate Tacoma is more than 300 Community Partners strong. We are parents and educators, early learning and higher education, business and labor, youth and community service, civic and philanthropy, local government and communities of faith – all aligning our work together with Tacoma schools to impact student success.

ECOSYSTEM OF EDUCATION

The Ecosystem of Education illustrates the network of interlocking parts existent in every city that influence youth success as a whole. Because every one of us has an influence in a young person's life, Graduate Tacoma brings into focus that work must be done across industries and with each other as partners to nurture environments that support students and their development. We do this by bridging all actors of the ecosystem.
