Marin Promise Partnership is based on the nationally acclaimed StriveTogether collective impact framework.


Partners’ program expertise, combined with backbone team process know-how, accomplishes together what none could do alone.

The Marin Promise Partnership approach is to accelerate and amplify the great work of the partners by weaving together all of the systems currently operating in separate silos. Preschools, K-5 Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, High Schools, Community Colleges and Universities, Nonprofits, Grassroots Community Groups, Government Programs, Educational Philanthropy and For Profit Educational Services all operate with different goals, data systems, policies and administrative processes.

The Partnership’s infrastructure brings all of these systems together into an integrated network of support so that no child is left without the support he/she needs to succeed.

Here’s how it works …



The backbone team helps bring together the right people, in the same room to ALIGN around a common vision under a proven cradle to career framework.



Partners agree to share data and to hold each other ACCOUNTABLE to collective goals and objectives.



Action Teams, guided by backbone team facilitators, develop common strategies and take collective ACTION, all the while measuring, and continuously improving toward results.



The Partnership Council and its Executive Committee ADVOCATE for equitable systemic changes in practices and policies.
