In 2006 Greater Cincinnati leaders representing the education, nonprofit, community, civic, and philanthropic sectors formed the Strive Partnership to ensure that all children have a quality education “from cradle to career.”  The partnership has five specific goals—1) every child is prepared for school; 2) every child is supported inside and outside of school; 3) every child succeeds academically; 4) every child enrolls in some form of postsecondary education; and 5) every child graduates and enters a career—which it achieves by engaging executive and grassroots partners in Strive’s vision, working through turf issues among service providers, and encouraging funders to move existing resources to proven strategies.  Recognizing its success in improving student outcomes, 26 states and the District of Columbia have replicated Strive’s approach.
