Homegrown Talent Initiative in the News

The Homegrown Talent Initiative is gaining momentum as communities begin to rally more students, parents, business partners, and educators to create more opportunities for career-connected learning and develop their graduate profiles. 

HTI is rooted deeply in the context of local community assets and needs, cultivating and solidifying partnerships between often siloed organizations. Facilitated by Colorado Succeeds and Colorado Education Initiative and supported by local and national foundations, including the Daniels FundWalton Family Foundation, and Gill Foundation. HTI aims to:

  • Identify exemplary programs already occurring across Colorado and support the documentation of best practices such that others can learn from their efforts.
  • Support communities in leveraging these and other efforts to develop and strengthen access to high-quality learning experiences in their schools and districts, as well as multiple pathways that lead learners to success in postsecondary education and career – a concept we call the Career- Connected Learning Continuum.

As we travel across the state to see these communities in action, we are excited to read about their efforts in the local news:
