Equity in Education: A New Collective Impact Initiative

December 15, 2016

Funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and Innoweave has allowed Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre (PQCHC) to emulate the successful Pathways to Education Program by mobilizing and connecting existing capacities in the Banff-Ledbury and Confederation Court neighborhoods, in order to create the wrap-around supports that form the basis of the remarkable improvements in the graduation rates of students living in low income neighborhoods. The focus is providing and connecting students and parents to academic and social supports that help them problem solve and navigate the school system.

OLIP, PQCHC/Pathways to Education, and Ottawa Children and Youth Initiative – Growing Up Great are the lead partners in this collective impact initiative, which brings an additional 30 stakeholders together. It responds to one of the five priorities of the OLIP Education Sector Table.
