Invitation to education working groups

Prosper Waco invites you to join our education focused working groups. These working groups are made up of community members who are creating intentional collaborations in order to see our community prosper. If you have any more questions please reach out to Hermann Pereira, hermann@prosperwaco.org.

Student Success
Prosper Waco is dedicated to Student Success in the Greater Waco community. Our focus recognizes that a thriving educational environment requires a holistic approach to student success, from early childhood to post-secondary education.

Pursuit of student success must also use workable approaches if we are to make progress. We begin with six working groups that will help education leaders in Greater Waco to focus on specific, district-supporting strategies. These working groups will be the driving model of Prosper Waco’s Student Success work in education.

Education, Workforce, and Talent Alliance
Education is shaping students for productive adult living, and today’s students become tomorrow’s workforce. Prosper Waco is dedicated to aligning education and workforce goals in ways that value the individuals as students who will become our emerging workforce. Community leaders with insight into how education connects with our future workforce make up this working group.
