About Us

About Marin Promise Partnership:

Marin Promise Partners believe that every child in Marin can reach his/her full educational potential regardless of race, ethnicity or income. That’s why more than 40 schools, nonprofits, businesses, and government agencies have come together as a cross-sector cradle to career network to address Marin county’s persistent and systemic educational inequities. With the support of back-bone team staff, Partners promise that by 2028 they will have closed educational equity gaps at every stage along the cradle to career educational journey. Using the StriveTogether collective impact framework, Partners are aligning around a common vision, using data to hold each other accountable, taking collective action, and advocating for equitable, systemic change. At Marin Promise, partners are seeking to create significant and deep impact in each of Marin Promise’s 6 Cradle to Career milestone areas:

  • Enter kindergarten ready to succeed
  • Master critical literacy concepts in 3rd grade
  • Master critical math concepts in 8th Grade
  • Graduate high school ready to succeed in college or career
  • Enroll in a College or Career Program
  • Complete a College or Career Program

The Backbone Team serves as a catalyst to unify and convene the Partners. We work in the space between systems to connect multiple entities into a seamless network of student support. We are process experts trained in results based accountability, continuous improvement, complex systems change, equity, research, business operations, project management, communications, data strategy, human centered design and group process facilitation.

The backbone team supports the Leadership Council as well as multiple Action Teams focused on eliminating disparities at each Milestone and across Milestones. They report progress towards these milestone goals as well as support teams in identifying what intervention strategies are working to close the equity gaps. They encourage collective learning and continuous improvement. The backbone team is the “connective tissue” that holds the Partnership together and enables the educational equity eco-system to function more effectively and efficiently.
