Children at lemonade stand

A Community Movement

Northfield Promise is a community movement to enable all Northfield area children to thrive, from cradle to career.

This work is accomplished by connecting and aligning resources, programs and community members to collaborate toward measurable results on 10 benchmarks throughout every child’s life.

By aligning all major community institutions around this shared set of measurable benchmarks, we will achieve community-level change for children and youth growing up in Northfield, Minnesota.

Rooted in Collective Impact

Northfield Promise was not a hastily designed initiative. Its launch followed nearly 18 months of research on collective impact, in-depth conversations with over 50 community groups and 500 stakeholders, and the selection of the StriveTogether framework.

Northfield Promise is a challenge to and with the community. It challenges Northfield to ensure all children succeed and, thus, deliberately focuses attention and resources on disparities in achievement and access among Northfield’s children.
