Strong Families…Successful Students… World-class Workforce...
Thriving Economy…Healthy Community

To provide every child with ample opportunities to succeed and achieve their life potential, we must come together as a community to address barriers and challenges to educational attainment and workforce development. Students who get off to a strong educational start are more likely to graduate from high school, are more likely to attend college, have dramatically higher earning potential over a lifetime, have better health outcomes, and are better able to contribute to the economic, social and cultural life of the community.

Cradle to Career Sonoma County is a historic partnership that connects all segments of the educational continuum – early childhood, K-12, college/technical training, careers – with broad community support to improve the educational, economic, and health outcomes for all Sonoma County youth.

Cradle to Career Sonoma County engages community partners to coordinate and align the education efforts and resources in Sonoma County to ensure that all of our youth are prepared to succeed.

Cradle to Career Sonoma County is a member of the Strive Cradle to Career Network. The Strive Cradle to Career Network launched in 2011 as a way to connect communities across the Country who are building cradle to career civic infrastructure using the Strive Framework.
