Every High Performance Community starts with a Spark:
an educational or workforce development entity looking for a way to expand their reach
a foundation or intermediary looking for a fresh strategy to solve problems at the system level
a mayor who wants a way to transform his community
a community member who is impatient for change, and has a deep social network
Creating a High Performance Community doesn't require millions of dollars, large grant proposals, legislative mandates or large committees -- it requires people who see the potential, and are ready to engage with their communities.
