About CANS

CAN Image
Collaborative Action Networks (CANs) are comprised of cross-sector practitioners and community members appointed by the Community Leaders Council to further understand the factors and root causes impacting each of the Cradle to Career Outcome areas, in order to determine and do the work that is needed to produce results on behalf of young people. CANs utilize a rigorous process to empower the RMC2C Partnership, and the larger community, to stop utilizing strategies that do not impact Cradle to Career Outcomes, and develop and scale the strategies that will.


Each Collaborative Action Network (CAN) functions as a collective impact mechanism that brings practitioners and partner organizations together to provide cross-sector coordination of efforts in areas that impact each Cradle to Career Outcome area.
