Change Language

Our Vision

By the age of 23, all Evanston young adults will be on the path to leading productive, satisfying lives.

The situation
we face

1

We’re proud of Evanston’s diverse community, strong schools, and dedicated nonprofit organizations.

2

Despite these resources, many young people are not realizing their potential in life.

3

Why do we fall short? Evanston faces deep, historic racial, social, and economic disparities.

4

The partners of Evanston Cradle to Career are working together to change the way Evanston operates and provides all youth with equitable opportunities.

Together,
we succeed.
