We will focus on identifying nearly 43,000 young people ages 11 – 24 who face barriers such as being economically disadvantaged and the first in their families to pursue education beyond high school. We will work to provide resources and tools to access and navigate the postsecondary pathway from preparation to admission to completion.
Our goal is to increase the percentage of Sarasota County residents 25 years and under who have obtained a high-value certificate, college degree, or training experience to 60% by 2030. This multi-dimensional problem demands a multi-pronged approach by a multi-partner collective for transformational change. Each PLANit Sarasota stakeholder will pool their unique knowledge base and constituent reach for the greater good and use data to achieve the long-term vision to extend outreach and services to all youth and their families throughout Sarasota County.
