In 2019, the Anchor Learning Network engaged in researching and writing case-studies for how early learning and Kindergarten through high school partnerships create more opportunities for higher education institutions to better serve local students and improve college access. Partnerships focus on workforce and career development programs that strengthen the education to career pipeline. Acting on the intention of the anchor mission, institutions of higher learning will share best practices for assisting the transition of youth from local communities into long-term, high quality, civic leading employment positions. Discussion topics will explore the interconnections and innovation levers that can be developed to strengthen the anchor mission’s impact on local communities, including how the people closest to the problems are better supported in engineering the mutual and long-term solutions.
