Cradle to Career

The Stanislaus Cradle to Career Partnership believes that all children can reach their full educational potential regardless of race, ethnicity, or family income. Every student deserves an opportunity to earn a postsecondary certificate, credential, or college degree with the opportunity to enter a meaningful, self-sustaining job in early adulthood.

About the Program

Since our official launch in Spring 2018, our Partnership has worked hard behind the scenes to develop the necessary infrastructure to sustain collective impact efforts over time. We now have a diverse leadership body that represents multiple sectors from education, business, government, faith, and community. Five action teams are driving an intentional process to move the needle on critical milestones along the cradle to career spectrum. We have a blended backbone team between Stanislaus Community Foundation and Stanislaus County Office of Education that provides ongoing coordination, resource development, and data support. Our Partnership joined the national Strive Together Network connecting our county to cradle to career resources and best practices from communities across the country.

We believe in building a sturdy foundation today so that we can sustain a long-term movement to lift all Stanislaus County learners to their highest aspirations.

Imagination Library

 

The Imagination Library of Stanislaus County registers newborn and infant children living in the county through partnerships with organizations and agencies already working directly with those children and/or their families.   

The books arriving from the Imagination Library are supported by ongoing parent education about the importance of reading to young children and tips for how best to do so. 

If you have a child under the age of 4, live in Stanislaus County, and are interested in signing up for Imagination Library, please contact Sue Rich at susan.rich9631@gmail.com.
