The Road Map Project works to dramatically improve education results in South King County by addressing systemic barriers, elevating community leadership, and building stronger systems —particularly for youth of color and low-income students.

The Community Leadership Team provides strategic leadership to help the Road Map Project reach its 2030 goal, working with Project partners, action teams, and initiatives to ensure that the work is anti-racist and is responsive to community priorities.

The team is seeking additional members to join our Community Leadership Team.  APPLY NOW.
