By All Means

Partner Communities

Our By All Means initiative has created a six-community national consortium of laboratories for building 21st century systems featuring integrated supports, expanded enrichment opportunities, and personalized interventions to ensure child well-being and educational success. Led by their respective mayors, each of these communities creates a Children’s Cabinet, works with a consultant funded through our Lab, establishes several initiatives in support of the theory, agrees to work on documentation and to be evaluated, and comes to the Harvard Graduate School of Education twice annually to work with national experts and the other community teams on advancing this work. Participating communities in By All Means are Chattanooga-Hamilton County, TN; Oakland, CALouisville, KYProvidence, RISalem, MASomerville, MA and the Partnership for Resilience in Illinois.
