GENEVA 2020

When an entire community comes together to support its youth, the results can be truly transformative.

Since 2011, Geneva 2020, a collective impact initiative, has worked to harness the resources of the entire Geneva community—nonprofit organizations, businesses and individuals—to support the education of Geneva’s children from the “cradle to career.” We have worked with community members and the Geneva City School District to identify these key areas to support our children:

  • Kindergarten readiness (age 0-5 development)
  • Literacy Success
  • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Design and Math) Success
  • Graduation Rate Improvement
  • College and Career Readiness

There have been great strides since 2011, highlighted by an increase in the graduation rate from 70.7 percent to 84.9 percent, but there is still much to do. Please consider offering your time, talent and treasure to support Geneva’s youth.
