Education, Equity & Excellence From Cradle to Career
Learning doesn’t begin and end in the classroom.
Transforming children into educated, independent adults is the job of the entire community. All Hands Raised brings together local business, government, non-profit organizations, faith community, parents, students and community stakeholders to ensure the sustained success of every child in Portland and Multnomah County from cradle to career.
Principal for Almost a Day (PFAD) gives community leaders the opportunity to connect with a public school principal, experiencing first-hand the opportunities and challenges that exist in schools throughout Multnomah County. Walking alongside our principals, even just for a morning, is a concrete opportunity to gain perspective on the important work of our school communities.Learn More
