Local collaboratives play a critical role in reaching North Carolina’s educational attainment goal by establishing local goals, identifying strategies and priorities to meet these goals, and working as partners of myFutureNC.
The myFutureNC regional impact team works to engage local communities to support opportunities for growth efforts, utilizing data from resources such as myFutureNC county attainment profiles to initiate conversations around establishing local attainment collaboratives and goals. In addition, myFutureNC is cataloging current local promising practices to support dissemination, scaling, and replication of impactful strategies across the state.
Each team or “collaborative” may cover an individual county, a municipal-county partnership, or a multi-county region.
The ncIMPACT Initiative at the UNC School of Government, myFutureNC, and with the generous support of the John M. Belk Endowment, Dogwood Health Trust and UNC Rural have launched a two-year pilot program that supports this first cohort of 15 local educational attainment collaboratives across North Carolina that seek to significantly increase the number of students successfully complete post-secondary credentials of value in the workforces: a degree, credential, or certification.
