Thriving Families, Thriving Community: A Meeting of the Minds
Thursday, December 1, 2016 ~ 1:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Ivy Tech Community College

Nearly a year ago, we met to discuss poverty in Grant County.  The consensus was that we wanted to work together to create a Shared Vision using the Collective Impact Model.

Since that time, a Collective Impact Guiding Team has met monthly to comb through research, identify stakeholders, and sharpen our focus.

We have learned a great deal and we are now extending the opportunity for you to act on what we have learned—to help co-create the future of Grant County across five key focus areas:

     1. Quality of Life and Place
     2. Education and Workforce Development
     3. Leadership and Community Engagement
     4. Government Innovation and Self-determination
     5. Entrepreneurial Culture and Support

We have heard about issues of child poverty and losing talent through out-migration; now it is time to take charge of our destiny and make good things happen. Grant County’s Collective Impact Guiding Team will share its initial recommendations and seek your input to move forward.

Please join us on Thursday, December 1, 2016, 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Ivy Tech Community College, 261 Commerce Dr, Marion, IN 46953.
