Kinder-Career Coalition

The Kinder-Career Coalition was formed to unite and align the goals and efforts of the early childhood, K-12, post-secondary, and workforce sectors in Doña Ana County using community-driven, data-informed, collaborative efforts to work towards the goals of our two Action Networks.

After launching the Kinder-Career Coalition in November, we hosted a series of Community Learning Sessions in an effort to identify and unify the work being done in the K-12, post-secondary, and workforce arenas in our community. Click HERE to watch the series.
