Minnesota has one of the largest opportunity gaps in the country, leaving our children of color behind. In order to eliminate the educational disparities we face in our community, we must go on this journey together. Through the collective work of our staff, community partners, and volunteers, we help stabilize families, build networks of services, and prepare children for school across our community. In fact, last year, 79% of Way to Grow children were prepared for kindergarten!
Alongside our neighbors, we continue to work toward eliminating barriers to early education in our community. For three decades, we have molded scholars, empowered parent champions, strengthened families, and walked with people in their time of need. Together, we can ensure every child has an equal opportunity to succeed in school and life.
