We work to change systems. And we know, in order to transform communities, we must think beyond individual programs or services. To see ourselves as a united system, working together to create more equitable outcomes for children and families.
As leaders of some of Utah’s most influential systems, the members of the Promise Partnership Regional Council (PPRC) are committed to collective impact. They act as the Promise Partnership's governing board, bringing in their expertise to guide how we create systems change in our community. Together, we are pursuing lasting social change on some of our community’s toughest challenges: poverty, poor health, and inequitable educational achievement.PPRC Members
