Success By 6

Reading-2Website: Success By 6

Chair: Gena Graves, GGraves@covenanthouseak.org

Our Story: Success By 6 (Sx6) is a partnership of more than a dozen agencies and other individuals in the Anchorage area who recognize the importance of early care and learning for Anchorage’s youngest children.

Our vision is to connect people and resources in support of young children and their families so Anchorage becomes a community in which all young children ages 0-5 begin school ready to learn. A key strategy the partnership uses is continual community engagement, with particular focus on building the Partnership’s cultural diversity.
