What is Cradle to Career?

Striving for Excellence.

In 2016, Cradle 2 Career started with a simple question, “Are our education investments making a difference in kids’ lives?” Rochester Rotary and United Way of Olmsted County decided the answer could be better. Fast forward, and we are an emerging StriveTogether community, and we are making a collective impact on the lives of Rochester’s youth.

We can achieve excellence for everyone by nurturing our shared community vision, empowering our partners to be courageous through data, mobilizing the best and equitable resources for children and their families, and by inspiring individuals to live boldly and collectively for positive change.
