North State Together is fortunate to have several organizations who are champions for student success.   Our sincerest thanks go out to the organizations below for supporting our collective regional work.

The McConnell Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to help build better communities through philanthropy. The McConnell Foundation has long been committed to increasing opportunities for children and youth of Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, and Trinity counties. North State Together was established in 2016 as a regional collective partnership funded by a $2.5 million dollar grant awarded by The McConnell Foundation.   As a result of the progress that has been made in the region, North State Together was awarded an 8 year multi million dollar grant renewal by The McConnell Foundation.  The North State Together backbone team and county collaborative network partners would like to thank The McConnell Foundation for investing long-term in our region through the North State Together collective impact cradle to career model to increase educational outcomes to ultimately improve the overall health and vitality of our communities.

North State Together is an Alliance member of Complete College America, a bold national advocate for dramatically increasing college completion rates and closing equity gaps by working with states, systems, institutions, and partners to scale highly effective structural reforms and promote policies that improve student success.

North State Together is proud to be a designated Lumina Talent Hub. We work collaboratively to enhance educational options and boost economic development by re-engaging adults who have left the formal education system. Expanding programs such as ACE, BOLD, STEP UP and the Siskiyou County Adult Ed Diploma, North State Together supports adults who seek credentials or career opportunities. North State Together builds off successful partnerships with local businesses, tribal communities and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act partners to help adults explore careers through a regional career portal and a virtual job-shadowing program.
