With the release of its first Baseline Report Card, Raise DC has put forth a roadmap for collaborative action to improve outcomes for District youth, from cradle to career. Organized around a common set of goals and driven by data, this growing partnership of philanthropic, corporate, government, and nonprofit leaders serves as a catalyst for creating a system of supports and opportunities in which young people can succeed and thrive.
