A Promising Approach to Addressing America’s Biggest Challenges

Community Collaboratives Whitepaper

Michele Jolin, Paul Schmitz and Willa Seldon look at ways to bring together community leaders to meet today's challenges in this white paper from the White House Council for Community Solutions.

Communities face powerful challenges—a high-school dropout epidemic, youth unemployment, teen pregnancy—that require powerful solutions. In a climate of increasingly constrained resources, those solutions must help communities to achieve more with less. A new kind of community collaborative—an approach that aspires to significant, community-wide progress by enlisting all sectors to work together toward a common goal—offers enormous promise to bring about broader, more lasting change across the nation.
