Core Values, Vision & Mission

Core Values:
Equity & Inclusion, Collaboration, Empowerment, Innovation & Integrity


Vision:
We envision a racially equitable inclusive education system that empowers all students to excel in their chosen postsecondary pathways.  


Mission:
Get Ready works with schools, students, and families to confront and dismantle the systems of oppression that prevent students from low-income backgrounds, communities of color, and indigenous communities from pursuing their chosen postsecondary pathways. We do this by:

  • building the infrastructure for students, families, and the community to actively and consistently engage in the schools’ decision-making;
  • developing innovative, culturally relevant programming for students, families and educators;
  • facilitating effective data utilization to drive continuous improvement;
  • fostering strategic partnerships with organizations to promote sustainability; and
  • establishing systems to ensure equitable access to critical resources.
