What We Do

Cradle to Career Outcomes

Cradle to Career Outcomes

RMC2C, along with network communities across the United States, organize their work around a ‘Roadmap to Success’ that plots the course of a young person’s journey from cradle to career. This roadmap encompasses seven core outcome areas that have been identified as the most critical for the success of every child: Kindergarten Readiness, Early Grade Reading, Middle Grade Math, High School Graduation, Post-Secondary Enrollment, Post-Secondary Attainment, and Youth Employment. 

National and local research indicates that when our youth are hitting targets in these seven outcome areas, their potential for long-term success greatly increases AND success of young people in these areas is synonymous with economic vitality. These Cradle to Career Outcomes are similar to vital signs used in healthcare, in this case, they tell us about the economic health of our community. The Cradle to Career Outcomes are HOW we measure success for our youth long-term. 

We have established a baseline for where our youth are currently performing. Visit our vital signs page for more information, by clicking the button below. To learn more about HOW we are working to improve each Cradle to Career Outcome, click HERE.
