DCA served as lead consultants for the design of the Boston Opportunity Agenda, a long-term partnership to ensure that all Boston residents have the support they need to achieve upward educational and economic mobility.

The Boston Opportunity Agenda includes clear goals, strategies and community partnerships to:

  • ensure all children have a solid early education foundation;
  • help all K-12 students complete high school on time with a strong combination of academic achievement, development of talents and 21st Century skills, and strong social support;
  • help all Boston Public School graduates enter and complete post-secondary education;
  • support learners in advancing through adult education through post-secondary attainment.

Opportunity Agenda members committed $27 million of their own funds to launch this work.
