    WHY ALIGNMENT BAY AREA?

    We need to work differently.

    The Alameda County Office of Education is incubating a collective impact initiative bringing together leaders of industry, school districts, colleges, labor and community organizations to integrate and transform systems to achieve these desired outcomes:

    LIVE

    Youth have the support they need.

    LEARN

    Students are college and career ready and able to succeed in the future.

    EARN

    Everyone in our community earns at least a family-living wage.

    THRIVE

    Our community is well: mentally, physically, and economically.

    Create aligned networks that provide equity, opportunity, and inclusion for every student in the Bay Area so that they will have a family sustaining wage by the time they are 25.

    Why?

    The Bay Area needs a larger local talent pipeline and young people in the region need support in attaining family-sustaining incomes.
    Business, community and education organizations are not coordinated together in building and growing a regional college and career readiness system.
    The strategies and approaches that are in place around college and career readiness are not aligned nor able to scale.

    What?

    Desired Outcomes Include:
    • Create a backbone organization that sustainably coordinates college and career readiness.
    • Design college and career readiness efforts with the region's workforce needs.
    • Bring leaders across sectors together, and craft and hold a common vision for aligning resources.

    Our Goals:

    • Cross system integration
    • Seamless pathways to college and career
    • Quality regional work-based learning and industry engagement for students
    • Community health, wealth, and prosperity
