Future Ready Collier announces the publication of its 2021-2022 Annual Report! Each year, Future Ready Collier (FRC) produces a written report reviewing the prior year’s goal progression, updating the network’s data priorities, and acknowledging the great work accomplished through the collaborative partnership. Current members of FRC receive copies in the mail, and at any time the report is available for free electronically. Printed copies of the report may also be requested by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the fifth consecutive annual report FRC has prepared since 2018. A founding priority of the network has been to track key metrics on an annual basis. Because FRC was established around and purposefully serves specific goals—help all children be prepared to start kindergarten; support students through elementary and middle school; and facilitate pathways to life, education, and career success after high school—it is important to assess how the network is progressing related to those goals. From its earliest days, FRC works hard to walk the walk, not just talk the talk. Collective action creates the energy that makes a difference in the community. The report shows how data have changed from year to year, relative to baseline measurements.
In addition to its education- and child development-focused goals, FRC consistently embraces themes of sustainability, capacity building, and collaborative growth. New members are always welcome who add their particular perspective on how to help children and families in Collier County thrive. When asked why they choose to engage with FRC, members consistently cite the value of the shared work. Having regular access to their education, nonprofit, business, foundation, and community colleagues means that the work is more transparent, that best practices are readily available and executed, and that each partner’s individual efforts are meaningfully amplified.
FRC invites you to learn more about the network’s efforts and partners, and please contact us if you’d like to get more involved.
