All Team Members

Action teams are groups who help steer the Road Map Project’s direction. We oversee bodies of work, identify key information, and carry out action plans toward Project goals. Action work collectively across sectors, and are staffed by various Road Map Project partner organizations.

Initiatives are campaigns, projects, or programs that target specific barriers to education equity. They are opportunities for anyone who want to help our students succeed. Our leads are staffed by various Road Map Project partner organizations.

The data and research team seeks to show how those responsible for our students’ education can better serve them. We use various data science and research methods and develops presentations, reporting tools, and papers—all driven by the recommendations, experiences, and perspectives of the Road Map Project region’s most-impacted communities.

The community engagement team fosters intentional and reciprocal partnerships with youth, families, practitioners, and community leaders. The team learns how communities are organizing; elevate their experiences, expertise, and aspirations; and collaborate to take action for change.

The Road Map Project Community Leadership Team is comprised of regional leaders who strive to improve educational and economic equity for the region's youth. We provide visionary leadership and community accountability as the region works to achieve Road Map Project goals. Contact: Carlina Brown Banks

The communications team supports the Project and its partners through media and community engagement, content strategy, report production, and more. We also manage the Road Map Project’s channels, including websites, newsletters, and social media.

We lead the day-to-day administration and operations to keep the Road Map Project running.

The Community Center for Education Results is a nonprofit created to launch and support the Road Map Project. We provide data, research, communications, logistical, and other staffing support to Road Map Project partners.
