We’re all in this together
Achieve Palm Beach County is a collective organization made up of students, parents, families, faith-based leaders, community business organization owners, educators, mentors, and many other walks of life who are all different, yet we all have one common denominator- we’re all residents of Palm Beach County and we all influence our economy. Our program partners represent over 50 different organizations that have combined expertise uniquely positioned to adequately address the needs of our priority populations as identified by our community with solutions that are devised by our community. No one knows our county better than its residents.
Teamwork makes the dream work
We believe that our collaborative efforts combined with our richly diverse community resources can be orchestrated to achieve the goals we have for our children while uplifting, supporting and strengthening relationships within our community. Our backbone organization the United Way of Palm Beach County, acts as our fiscal agent and has a history of providing community-wide support since 1929, which adds to the breadth and scope of what Achieve Palm Beach County can and will accomplish.
It’s not always what you know, but who you know
Relationships are at the heart of everything we do which is why we celebrate the ones that exist within our community and strive to create and establish new ones. We seek out organizations doing great things but who may be working in silos and try to connect them with others in a meaningful and intentional way so as to respect, strengthen and celebrate both sides of the relationship.
What we've done
Achieve Palm Beach County began with a community gathering in May of 2015, when a group of Palm Beach County Leaders invited community members from a cross-section of organizations to discuss improving educational attainment through a collective impact approach.tell me more
