Collaborative Impact

Eastern Ohio Education Partnership (EOEP) is committed to helping all children succeed...cradle to career. That is why EOEP is advocating for individual programs to come together in new ways. EOEP is no longer looking at isolated approaches to doing things. We are focused on doing things that will make a collective impact.

Imagine as a business owner each of your departments - marketing, sales, production – all had different targets; or, as a social service agency each part of a program had different targets – it would be hard to achieve set objectives. This can happen to any of us, we have our heads down doing great work, taking care of our part. But what if we were all working toward one goal? We’d be much more likely to hit our target – collectively.

The partners at Eastern Ohio Education Partnership strongly believe that we, with your support, can change the educational outcomes of area students.
