Reviewing our Call to Action

December 21, 2017

Renewing Our Call to Action responds to the October 2015 Youth Perspective Report completed by the City of Columbus to support their expanding work in the My Brother's Keeper Initiative. As a part of that report's recommendations, the City of Columbus seeks to work with the community to collaboratively set short and long-term goals with measurable targets, or common benchmarks of success.In an effort to bring the community together around youth initiatives, the City of Columbus commissioned the Kirwan Institute to develop a report to learn more about the local landscape of youth vulnerability, and to get a better understanding of existing assets at the neighborhood level. This report provides a portrait of youth vulnerability and resources across Columbus, and outlines how we can work together to raise the bar and close achievement gaps in order to ensure that all youth in Columbus have the opportunity to succeed. Renewing Our Call to Action is the first step of a recommitment to building a community that provides opportunity for all.
