The annual event (held at the Museum of Fine Arts) looks at Boston's education performance along a number of key indicators for Boston students from early education to college and beyond. Along with remarks from the leaders of Boston's public, charter and Catholic schools, this event served as an opportunity to recognize the Reverend Ray Hammond, whose leadership and engagement as the Boston Opportunity Agenda's first board chair has been instrumental in its work.
The Boston Opportunity Agenda launched a series of conversations for organizations serving children from Birth to Eight years old in Boston. Exploring most recent available data regarding child outcomes in Boston, these conversations center around current efforts that address the needs of young children and potential collective impact efforts to support infants, toddlers, young children and families throughout the city.
We encourage anyone working with children and families to sign up for our mailing list to stay up to date on collaborative meetings and surveys. If you are interested in serving on a committee, please sign up here. Our 2019 convening dates are January 25th, 2019 and May 10th, 2019
