Collective Impact for Children and Youth Baseline Report

The Collective Impact Baseline study is part of United Way’s pilot initiative to increase the graduation rate over the next 10 years for the community’s most vulnerable youth. This data will form the baseline against which United Way and its agencies will be measured in the goal to increase the graduation rate for at-risk children being served with United Way support.

This study provides a snapshot of the children and youth being served by this group of agencies and will help in the creation of benchmarks for measuring these students’ progress in the future. The study was conducted by the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute and used the Institute for Social Capital community database for the demographic and academic performance information.
