Where We Stand - A Ten Year Journey

Achieve Hartford! is turning ten, and we want you to reflect with us on our birthday.

Despite a promising start in closing Hartford's achievement gap, there is no question that progress has stalled.

Like us, you wonder if anything will bring about the change Hartford kids deserve.

But seeing the commitment of people like you has kept us optimistic of what we can accomplish and guided us in a new direction this past year.

What we've learned is that real change takes education champions outside the school system to fight the bigotry of low expectations, fight the sense that there's nothing we can do, and step up to lead.

Celebrating our ten year anniversary, we are dedicating our resources to helping leaders outside the public school system, like you, to remove barriers to student achievement.

The two initiatives we backbone, the ALL IN! college & career readiness coalition and Weaver High School Redesign, are proving what's possible when leaders outside the school system step up.

With thirteen high schools in Hartford, each graduating just 50 - 150 students, it's within our reach to get each student what they need to enter and complete college, and into a career right here in Hartford.

We've redesigned ourselves to support your leadership in solving education issues in Hartford, and we're asking you to renew your commitment to Hartford.

Join us in our new direction where more adults are working together — differently.

Are you ready to create change?

If you’re with us, please donate now.

Your contribution will help us launch new action teams to take down one barrier at a time, and accomplish even more in 2018.

No gift is too small, and to help us reach our goal, one donor has pledged $10 for every individual donation made.

This summer take a moment to reflect on where we are … and on where we could be.

Enjoy time with loved ones and allow yourselves to dream and hope again for Hartford!

Let's recommit ourselves and start the summer strong.


Towards a Greater Hartford,

Paul & the Achieve Hartford! team
