Educational Success

The Educational Success action team is focused on helping Wake Youth reach the following goals:

  • 95% of third grade students read on grade level
  • 95% of students graduate high school ready for college and career

We are taking Collective Action and calling community organizations and leaders to:

  1. Collect and Share Data:
    1. Administer a survey to youth on outcomes in the Blueprint (provided by Youth Thrive)
    2. Measure and provide data on program capacity, and participation with demographics of participants
  2. Provide access to books for students, promote students choosing books of interest to encourage the love of reading and encourage 20 minutes of daily reading.
  3. Promote access to college by working to ensure that by 9th grade, all students have the opportunity to visit at least one college.

Action Team Meetings to support 3rd Grade Reading are facilitated through Wake Up and Read, visit their website to join the work.

Action Team Meetings to support students graduating high school ready for college and career are led by staff from the  Wake County Public School System, Wake Partnership for Post-Secondary Success, and the Wade Edwards Learning Lab.
