FUTURE READY EQUITY PILLARS

To achieve this goal, we are committed to scaling Healing, Access, and Voice to our young people.

HEALING

Young people will be future ready when they all have the developmental relationships and healing supports they need.

ACCESS

Young people will be future-ready when they can all access high-quality education and career opportunities.

VOICE

Young people will be future ready when their voices are heard and their leadership potential is nurtured.

Our Networks

UP Partnership’s systems change networks are communities of leaders who share a common focus on the three equity pillars of healing, access and voice, and advance that focus through annual events, social gatherings and shared practices.

Our Collaboratives

UP Partnership’s three continuous improvement collaboratives are a space for teams to build internal capacity to expand shared practices in healing, access and voice and ground themselves in the results.

How We Do Our Work

Working with 175 partners, we are committed to utilizing data and aligning resources to create equitable systems and ensuring all young people in Bexar County are ready for the future.

Using a collective impact model, we bring leaders together to design solutions for students. Each partner brings their own resources, expertise and data to make sure we look at the full picture of a student’s experience when making policies. Our policy and strategy decisions are based on shared data that’s broken down by race, ethnicity, gender, geography, and income.

Talent is Equally Distributed but Opportunity is Not

In Bexar County, our young people’s futures are being shaped by where they live, how much money their parents make, and what category of race or ethnicity they fall into. Our data sheds light on that disparity so that we can work as a partnership to enact policy change that moves us closer to a future in which opportunity is equitably distributed.
