Ngage New Mexico (Ngage) serves as a backbone organization for an education initiative called SUCCESS! Partnership in Doña Ana County .. The partnership covers the complete education spectrum – from prenatal stage to career. We utilize a collective impact approach.
Collective Impact is a process that involves everyone in the community- local businesses, government, educational institutions (both public & private as well as higher education), the philanthropic sector, non-profit organizations, faith based organizations, as well as students, teachers, parents, and early childhood providers. These cross-sector groups, along with individual community members interested in working together are taking action to improve education throughout our community and promoting the idea that education is shared responsibility—we all have a role to play.
Ngage NM believes that knowledge is power, and only through improved education, increased community engagement and action can sustainable improvements be reached, which essentially will help to improve the quality of life for everyone in our community. The collective impact process requires time, commitment, involvement, collaboration, and action. Together, everyone involved in this partnership determines specific ways that they can help to improve previously agreed upon educational outcomes for a more productive society.
We have a staff of five individuals plus I.T. support called We Are I.T.
