Sharing the Work
OnTrack Greenville was established to address the needs of students in Greenville County through collaboration, community, and collective impact. As the National Council of Nonprofits states, the term collective impact "describes an intentional way of working together and sharing information for the purpose of solving a complex problem. Proponents of collective impact believe that the approach is more likely to solve complex problems than if a single nonprofit were to approach the same problem(s) on its own." The following organizations are a major part of our collective impact approach. Learn more about each partner below!
