We are a place-based partnership* working in the heart of the north Denver metro region, which includes Adams County, the City of Arvada, the City of Aurora, and the City and County of Broomfield.
This region is one of the fastest growing regions in Colorado, having grown its population by 19% over the past 10 years, with no sign of slowing down.
It is inclusive of both suburban and rural areas, and is home to over 900,000 community members and growing.
*A Place-based partnership is a collaborative effort addressing specific challenges or opportunities within a particular geographic area or community that works within the context of a specific location to implement initiatives, programs, or strategies aimed at improving the well-being and development of that area.
Milestones AND Metrics for Success (Cradle to Career Outcomes)
Economic and social mobility is multifaceted. As part of the national StriveTogether Network, we recognize the following milestones are critical for individuals to meet along their journey to economic and social mobility. These milestones double as the metrics our network uses to tell us if someone is on the path to being economically and socially mobile.
These are not the only metrics that matter across communities; there are many additional factors that impact a young person’s ability to experience upward economic mobility, which we continue to track through the RMP Scorecard.
|RMP has set an ambitious target to ensure 71,000 more young people are achieving the key milestones we have identified along their journey to economic and social mobility.
Toward this, our 2030 Strategic Plan will guide us through this initial ‘RESILIENCY PHASE’, which aims to get us back to the rate we were at prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are measuring our progress through the improvement of the metrics that we know indicate if someone is on a path to being economically and socially mobile.
