United Palatine Coalition

Who We Are

United Palatine Coalition is a network of organizations and residents focused on equity, ensuring that children and young adults are inspired and on a path to a purposeful and self-reliant life by age 24.

Our Values

As a network of community stakeholders, we believe in:

Adopting an equity lens to take a system-level approach to problem solving

Inequities will be addressed to ensure that resources and opportunities are accessible to all

Shared Responsibility

We will all contribute to resolving identified community-wide challenges

Placing the needs of our youth first

So often we want our youth to conform to systems that don't fit with their learning style, or culture, instead of adapting to meet them where they are

Leveraging existing resources to execute the mission and achieve our goals

We will dedicate resources when necessary to achieve our shared goals so that we can realize our shared dream of a united Palatine

Using data and research to drive our decision making, hold each other accountable, and develop strategies for intervention

We are all responsible for the outcome from our efforts

Data will be used as a tool for constructive conversation, decision making, and continuous improvement
