Since its founding in 2014, Achieve Brown County has operated under a simple premise:
Those who care about our community’s young people — from parents and educators to civic, non-profit and business leaders — can accomplish more by working together than by working independently.
In partnership with nearly 70 other organizations in the national StriveTogether network, Achieve Brown County works to ensure that every child succeeds from cradle to career, regardless of race, income or zip code. As a backbone organization for community-led collective impact, Achieve Brown County convenes, facilitates and supports the efforts of dozens of businesses, non-profits, schools, government agencies and individual community members to create a truly equitable Brown County in which ALL young people have what they need to succeed in school, work and life.
To advance positive, cradle-to-career outcomes for ALL young people.
A truly equitable Brown County in which ALL young people have exactly what they need to succeed in school, work and life.
Our Core Values
We focus on what connects us rather than what separates us and communicate to each other with transparency and integrity.
We fail forward even if no one is watching, have the tough conversations no one likes having and take risks in pursuit of results.
We seek and value all types of diversity, put equity into action daily and strive to dismantle inequities, including those present in ourselves, our organization and our communities.
We share learning and progress in real time, view professional development as personal growth and fix problems through continuous improvement.
We use data and evidence to make decisions and hold each other accountable for getting results.
