The mission of Alignment Nashville is to bring community organizations and resources into alignment so that their coordinated support of Nashville's youth has a positive impact on public school success, children's health, and the success of our community as a whole.


3D Collective Impact Outcomes

Long Term Outcomes

In 2012, the Alignment Nashville Board of Directors approved the following long-term outcomes for the organization:

  •  Increase High School Graduation Rate
  •  Increase College Readiness
  •  Increase Career Readiness
  • Children's Health and Wellness
  • Community Prosperity

Each Alignment Team creates a Tactical Plan that links the short- and mid-term outcomes of their work to one or more of these long-term outcomes. This will ensure multiple approaches are considered - for example, the Pre-K Alignment Team will link their work in early childhood education to increasing high school graduation rates - demonstrating the importance of collective impact when addressing complex issues.


Collective Impact = Power to Change
