BOF is seeking applicants for the third iteration of our Continuous Improvement Cohort. Previous organizations who’ve participated include United Way of Kenosha County, Kenosha Achievement Center, Kenosha Human Development Services, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Racine and Kenosha, and the Boys and Girls Club of Kenosha. This 8-week cohort will guide small teams through the principles of the Results Count framework, while also introducing tools from our StriveTogether network partners. The cohort is intended to allow organizations to step out of their day-to-day work, analyze and understand their data, identify areas of improvement and utilize human-centered strategies to improve results for those they serve. Your organization can learn more and apply by visiting: .

Throughout the past few years college graduation and retention rates have not changed as drastically as some of the other cradle to career indicators we share. However, gaps between public and private institutions, and racial, ethnic, and economic groups of students persist. When reviewing graduation and retention rates from local institutions on our College and Career Readiness dashboard, consider the following questions:
What are the factors contributing to students not finishing college?
Who plays a role in addressing these factors?
Which factors would require the least/most amount of energy and resources to shift?
