The Boston Opportunity Agenda launched a series of conversations for organizations serving children from Birth to Eight years old in Boston. Exploring most recent available data regarding child outcomes in Boston, these conversations center around current efforts that address the needs of young children and potential collective impact efforts to support infants, toddlers, young children and families throughout the city.
The next event will be held at the Boston Children's Museum on Monday, June 13, 2016. There will be networking and a continental breakfast starting at 9:30 followed by the discussion from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Please sign up for the event and to register for the Early Education Convening mailing list.

The Boston Opportunity Agenda is dedicated to ensuring that all of Boston’s residents have
the opportunity to acquire the education they need to find work in the region’s knowledge
economy and to help them lead secure, fulfilling lives.
The Boston Opportunity Agenda is a public/private partnership among the City of Boston, the Boston Public Schools, the city’s leading public charities and many local foundations to ensure that all Boston residents have access to the education necessary for upward economic mobility, civic engagement, and lifelong learning for themselves and their families. We fervently believe that by combining our resources, expertise and influence around a single agenda, we will have a greater impact on Boston’s cradle-to-career educational pipeline.
While Boston has many exciting programs and organizations that focus on providing opportunities for individuals, the Boston Opportunity Agenda is a long-term partnership focused on achieving system change that will ultimately affect all Boston residents. It is with this in mind that in 2014 the leadership of the Boston Opportunity Agenda expanded the focus of our work to include not only Boston Public Schools, but also Catholic and Charter schools located in Boston.
Over the past several years, the Boston Opportunity Agenda member organizations have used three organizing principles to guide our collective work and network structure. The partnership is governed by the CEOs of each member organization who identify strategic issues facing our educational pipeline in whole or in part, formulate the Boston Opportunity Agenda priorities and strategies, and provide a call to action for community stakeholders.
