Welcome to ACTS!The Alliance is a group of activists dedicated to the belief that urban children deserve to grow up in nurturing school communities, where each can develop a strong, capable, culturally-grounded identity. We work to ensure that schools are places of respect, inspiration and purposeful activity, where children have the very best possible learning experiences, led by adults who know them well. With a focus on educational resiliency, we cultivate excellence in all those who support children’s healthy development, creative capacity and academic excellence. We support concerted collaboration that makes each school community one of shared responsibility, engaged work, and infinite opportunity. To those ends, we foster the emergence of community teachers and community schools.
Please take time to explore who we are and what we stand for. You can also learn about how to join our work in giving hope and making a difference.
