Partnership 4 Success

Increases in positive youth outcomes requires strategic partnerships between in-school and out-of-school youth service providers and educators. Social, emotional, and academic gains are interconnected and built on strong relationships. Partnership4Success (P4S) serves as an equity-centered collective impact backbone entity convening community stakeholders with a focus on continuous improvement. This approach maximizes and magnifies current investments in the youth service sector by fostering provider and funder collaboration, thus increasing the return on investment. P4S currently has three initiatives that support collective impact in Franklin County.

We bring together educators and other community stakeholders with a focus on equity, continuous improvement, and collective impact.

  • Social Emotional Learning Collaborative: A community of practice using social emotional learning and early warning indicator student-level data to inform programming in out-of-school-time settings across Franklin County.

  • Professional Learning: A forum for shared learning and capacity building around equity, social emotional development, coaching, facilitation, and strengthening strategic partnerships.

  • Site-Based Collective Impact: Since 2018 P4S serves as the backbone entity and thought partners for school-based collective impact projects. Convening six youth service providers alongside school-based educators and community partners at our pilot site, P4S contributed to a dramatic F to B growth in the schools’ Achievement Gap grade.
