2017 Action Summit
Taking Collective Action:
rnPreparing Wake Youth for Postsecondary Success
The 2017 Action Summit, Taking Collective Action: Preparing Wake County Youth for Post-Secondary Success, took place Thursday, March 16, 2017, at the Talley Student Union on NC State University’s campus. Collective impact provides a compelling model of social action for deep and systemic change.
The College of Education and Wake Partnership for Postsecondary Success explored the use of collective impact action strategies to address how communities can engage, create, and commit to a plan to support and serve area Wake County youth in their quest for postsecondary and career success.
Lightning talks kick-started morning conversations, which led attendees into further conversations during their breakout session. These opportunities to network and brainstorm collective action initiatives with community, education, business, and government leaders informed the strategies to create a framework of community change and impact.
