June 27, 2017 Public Report On Generation Next

Generation Next's C2G Approach

Generation Next takes a cohesive, all-in approach to address our educational and community crisis. The partnership brings education, community, government and business leaders together to identify and adopt successful programs that are proven to work.

Together, Generation Next leaders will use a cradle-to-career framework to help students achieve six key goals. These goals are research-based competencies and key transition points that are necessary for students’ developmental progress. To ensure effective programs and consistent measures of achievement, networks of providers will focus on specific topics within the six key goals. Using data-based decision-making, we will identify a clear way forward, finding and implementing the most effective educational solutions and programs.

Modeled on success: the National StriveTogether Network

Generation Next is modeled on the successes of the National StriveTogether™ Network, whose programs have produced positive results in more than 20 metropolitan school districts, including Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Boston, Portland and San Francisco.

For example, during its first five years in Greater Cincinnati, StriveTogether™ achieved positive improvements in 40 of 53 educational outcomes measured, including:

  • A 9% rise in kindergarten readiness
  • An 11% increase in high school graduation
  • A 10% increase in college enrollment

Site Information
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community,'s  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. could be an interesting first step.

The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
