Can a focus on data improve outcomes for Opportunity Youth? Since 2019, the Opportunity Youth Collaborative (OYC) has been partnering with the Boston Public Schools and Bunker Hill Community College, the largest youth- and young adult-serving institutions in the city, to incorporate a more comprehensive data strategy into their work to address racial inequity in student experience and outcomes. At this forum, representatives of both institutions, as well as youth and young adult leaders who will share lessons learned from this work and goals for the future.
The COVID pandemic provides us with an opportunity to reimagine education in Boston. Join us to explore data trends across our cradle to career outcomes in Boston and explore what data on student outcomes will be available in the near future to guide our recovery efforts. Attendees heard from community leaders about new ways that we can work together to advance equity and a just education ecosystem in Boston.
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.
