Annual America Forward Coalition Strategy Meeting

America Forward

At the Annual America Forward Coalition Strategy Meeting, Brooke Stafford-Brizard, Senior Advisor, Turnaround for Children was invited to share Turnaround’s newest tool: Building Blocks for Learning, a framework for the development of skills children need for success in school and beyond.

The America Forward Coalition is a network of more than 70 innovative, impact-oriented organizations that foster innovation, identify more efficient and effective solutions, reward results, and catalyze cross-sector partnerships in education, early childhood, workforce development, youth development, and poverty alleviation. Together, the America Forward Coalition members have leveraged $1.5 billion for social innovation and have driven millions of federal resources toward programs that are achieving measurable results for those who need them most. Our Coalition members are achieving measurable outcomes in more than 14,500 communities across the country every day, touching the lives of nearly 8 million Americans each year. We believe that innovative policy approaches can transform these local results into national change and propel all of America forward.
