Northfield Promise

Our Structure

Structured for Success

Northfield Promise’s structure is intentionally designed for broad community participation, engagement and leadership. The key bodies within Northfield Promise include:

  • Council of Champions
  • Steering Committee
  • Action Teams
  • Data Team
  • Healthy Community Initiative
  • Community Volunteers

Council of Champions+

This group, composed of leaders of the largest community institutions, meets quarterly and provides key leadership to Northfield Promise. Champions are committed to using their “organizational muscle” to advocate for Northfield Promise and access resources to help achieve Action Team plans.

Steering Commitee+

This group is composed of committed community partners, HCI board members and the chairs of the Action Teams. The committee oversees day-to-day efforts, assists with framework development, leads communications efforts and recruits members and stakeholders.

Action Teams+

Each Action Team is composed of any individual or institution interested in the Action Team’s focus area. Each team is charged with developing a plan to help see community change in 1 or 2 of the Northfield Promise benchmarks. Northfield Promise is rolling out teams to cover all 10 benchmarks over the next two years.

Active Action Teams include:

  • Ready for Kindergarten
  • Reading
  • School and Community Connectedness
  • Career and College Readiness

Teams are open to anyone who is interested in being involved. Contact us to learn more and sign up!
