United for Youth partners work together with youth and family leadership to ensure educational outcomes are determined by the high quality of our schools and partner organizations, the abundance and accesibility of opportunities in our community, the strength of our collaborations, and are never again predictable based on a student's race, home language, family income, or any other dimension of identity.
Our Vision: ALL children and youth learn, grow, and thrive in a vibrant, healthy, and connected community.
Our Mission: To actively identify and remove barriers to opportunity and co-create solutions that support student success.
Our Goal: By 2035, ALL Asheville City and Buncombe County students graduate from high school ready and fully prepared to pursue their goals and dreams.
The Partnership Agreement serves as a mutual accountability tool; a way to measure if, and how, we are meeting this vision, mission, and bold community goal. It is not the end itself, but a guide helping us move toward the fulfillment of a promise.
