Collective Impact

Collaborates with nonprofit, government, corporate,
and civic organizations; community leaders, educators, colleges and universities, parents and
students to form a collective impact to increase resources and equitable opportunities to narrow
and close achievement and opportunity gaps in underserved communities. We recruit and co-
create with cross-sector partners, provide resources and skills to convene and coordinate
participating organizations into developing a common agenda (common understanding of the
problem and shared vision for change), shared measurement (research, collecting data, and
measuring results), mutually reinforcing activities (coordination though joint plan of action),
continuous communication (consistent and open communication), stakeholder and community
engagement (Eastern Henrico and Richmond), equity in collaboration and interventions, and
shared power. Together we will develop best practices and a model leadership program derived
from research, collected data and evaluation.

Young Leaders

Our Leadership Program cultivates young leaders to thrive in their
community with a commitment to academic, social, economic, environmental, and civic
excellence. The program will academically motivate youth, develop academic skills, behaviors,
and attitudes. The program will serve sixty 5 th grade students who reside underserved
communities (Eastern Henrico, and Richmond), attend schools that are not fully accredited, and
are performing below the state benchmark in reading and math. Over four years, (5 th – 8 th ) the
program will provide participants with: (1) tutoring for weak subject areas; (2) preparation for
standardized tests in reading and math; (3) instruction in financial literacy; (4) hands on project
learning, field trips and life skills; (5) community and corporate mentors, and monthly guest

speakers in leadership roles; (6) arts; (7) trauma informed care. Students are enrolled at no cost
and will have the opportunity to improve their grades, school attendance, and prepare to qualify
for local accredited specialty schools. The program will be administered by professionals,
educators, corporate, government and civic leaders, and volunteers. Funding for this program
will be donated by individuals, corporations, funding organizations, and government grants.
100% of our time and resources will be spent on the activities to fulfill the mission. Funding
permitting SCORE may obtain a full-time executive director to oversee the program.
