Who We Are

Seeding Success is a Memphis Cradle to Career Partnership that seeks to ensure every child has the support and resources they need to succeed cradle to career.

As a leader of systems-level change, the Seeding Success Partnership encourages collaboration among diverse partners, by building their capacity to make data-informed decisions that put children at the center; advocates for equity-based policies and funding to remove barriers and sustain improvements; and helps design systems to address disparities.

Seeding Success is a member of the StriveTogether Cradle to Career Network.
StriveTogether is a national movement with a clear purpose: helping every child succeed
in school and life from cradle to career, regardless of race, zip code or circumstance. In
partnership with nearly 70 communities across the country, StriveTogether provides
resources, best practices and processes to give every child every chance for success.

In 2018, Seeding Success received its designation as PROOF POINTS partnership member.  Partnerships that have become PROOF POINTS are operating in the Systems Change gateway and are seeing 60% of indicators in the six cradle-to-career outcome areas maintained or improved. As Proof Point is a significant milestone but not an end state, partnerships would continue to work on changing systems, improving outcomes and closing gaps around disparities across the continuum.


Our Vision

The Seeding Success Partnership collaborates to ensure every child has the resources they need to succeed cradle to career.

Our Goals

The partnership will be measuring its impact on four community goals:

GOAL 1: Every child is prepared for success in school;

GOAL 2: Every student is successful in school and graduates prepared for college, career, and success in life;

GOAL 3: Every youth who is not in school reconnects to education, training, or employment opportunities;

GOAL 4: Every young adult has access to a post-secondary opportunity or career.

These goals align to 8 community-wide academic outcomes that the partnership has chosen to commit to improving. Click here to find out more about these outcomes.
