All children and families bring unique talents, skills and gifts to the educational experience.
Multiple social influences affect a child’s educational success, many which exist outside our educational system. Our children are members of families which are unequally impacted by various socio-economic systems in our community.
For this reason, the partners of LAUNCH Flagstaff commit to a strategic, coordinated approach across all community sectors that ensures equitable access to world class education for every child. To do this, we must be innovative with tactics proven to build resiliency in struggling families, because household stability is fundamental to ensuring educational success for children.
Establishing equity often requires a non-equal distribution of resources with the intent of creating equal opportunity of success for every child. Working toward achieving equity will not be easy, but is one of the most important components of the work of LAUNCH Flagstaff
Our work is focused on the greater Flagstaff area, including its surrounding communities.
Our current work areas include:
- Early childhood education
- Middle grade mathematics
- Post-secondary training and education
which are all part of our shared educational goals.
