Ways to Get Involved
See how you can participate and help the California Cradle-to-Career Data System grow!
The Cradle-to-Career team continues to make significant progress toward establishing the country’s most comprehensive data system, and we want to ensure community members are aware of and involved in the process. We regularly engage the public through interactive webinars, known as Community Conversations, to inform development, interpretation, and awareness of the data system, and foster an environment and culture of collaboration.
Advisory Board Meetings
Two advisory boards will provide opportunities for data users to help improve the Cradle-to-Career System. Advisory board members were appointed by the Governing Board and include people who use the Cradle-to-Career System, including practitioners, families, students, adult learners and workers, community organization staff, research organization staff, and advocacy organization staff.
C2C Community Engagement Advisory Board Meeting
The Community Engagement Advisory Board will create strong feedback loops with data users to support evidence-based decision making, analytical capacity, and equitable access to actionable information.
C2C Data & Tools Advisory Board Meetings
The Data & Tools Advisory Board will help ensure that the data tools provide actionable information.
Governing Board Meetings
The Cradle-to-Career Governing Board includes representatives from data providers, policymakers, and the community. The Governing Board balances expertise in K-12, postsecondary, social services, workforce, as well as government and public perspectives.
