We bring Delawareans together to reach common goals and priorities. We connect advocates with experts—local and national—form coalitions, and facilitate partnerships. We amplify voices across the state to advocate for impactful policy change and concrete shifts in classroom practice. Read more about our partnerships with the Vision Coalition of Delaware, Education Equity Delaware and more.
We track outcomes, and share data and best practices from around the globe so that partners and lawmakers can make the best decisions. Read our in-depth reports on the current state of education and postsecondary preparation in Delaware.
We’re problem solvers. We provide targeted guidance and resources, allowing partners to make sense of important policies and issues. And we offer innovative solutions to thorny challenges. Learn more about our current partners: the Delaware Business Roundtable Education Committee and the Delaware Community Foundation.
We bring national and local talent to the Delaware projects that matter. If our team can’t fill the gap, we leverage our national network to bring on needed expertise from groups like Pathways to Prosperity, the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning, and Education First.
We allocate public and private dollars effectively for the largest impact. We are strong project managers and are results-focused. Read about our work with Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Arsht-Cannon Fund.
We know that large-scale change does not happen without strong communications. We bring customized communications support to the table when it’s needed to make clearer sense of data, celebrate progress, or signal urgency.
