Evanston Township High School will host an open community meeting to meet the three final candidates for the first executive director of Evanston Cradle to Career. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 3, 6:30-8:30pm at ETHS in room N112. The executive director will lead a new, citywide, collective impact initiative to mobilize community assets to make a lasting difference in the lives of Evanston children, youth and families. 

In order to include the voice of the community, attendees will be asked to complete a feedback form on all of the candidates which will be used in the final selection process. 

Over the last several years, a wide range of community representatives have joined together to develop and financially support the launch of the Evanston Cradle to Career initiative. The goal of this work is:  By the age of 23, all Evanston young adults will be leading productive lives, building on the resources, education, and support that they and their families have had to help them grow into resilient, educated, healthy, self-sufficient, and socially responsible adults.
