Learn to Earn Dayton is pleased to announce that we have been selected to participate in the Mobility Action Learning Network, a national technical assistance program administered by the Urban Institute for advancing locally driven programs, policies, and actions that boost upward mobility from poverty and racial equity.
The team's application focused on the region's deep commitment to collaboration and experience with place-based, two-generation approaches to support educational outcomes.
Learn to Earn Dayton CEO Stacy Wall Schweikhart said, "We are incredibly honored to have been selected by the Urban Institute to participate in the Mobility Action Learning Network. It's important to share that the application did not feature the work of Learn to Earn Dayton alone -- rather, it was a true collaboration with the City, County, University of Dayton Fitz Center for Leadership in Community, and many of our two-gen collaborative members, who all work together to drive outcomes that break the cycle of intergenerational poverty."
The network is developed to equip mobility action teams across the country with data, promising practices, and opportunities to learn from each other to address local challenges related to upward mobility and racial equity work.
The work gets underway in November and will continue for 12 months, including virtual workshops, peer-learning opportunities, and advisory support calls with Urban Institute experts.
Schweikhart shared, "The team is excited to actively participate in the learning through the Network, as we work to increase economic mobility for all in Montgomery County."
