Collective Impact: A discussion on education #cysummit

As part of our National Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. Jon Schnur of America’s Alliance moderated a panel of leaders in education. The final question asked was:

“Ten years from now, what would you want to be able to be announcing?”

Here is what they had to say:

“In every city that City Year exists, there is a leader who ten years before was one of your students who was off track and at risk.” Michele Cahill, VP for National Program & Program Director of Urban Education, Carnegie Corporation of New York and Trustee, City Year, Inc.

“A new long-term impact goal because this one was achieved.”Dr. Robert Balfanz, Research Scientist, Johns Hopkins Talent Development

“Every child in America has a quality education because City Year was there for the students who needed them.” Stacey Stewart, Executive Vice President of Community Impact, United Way Worldwide

“We not only changd the arc of many lives, but we changed the arc of the country.”John Gomperts, President and CEO, America’s Promise Alliance

“High school graduation rate in Jacksonville is 80-90% and City Year is now a global organization impacting the world.” Mayor Alvin Brown, City of Jacksonville, Florida
