The Worcester Education Collaborative (WEC ) is an independent advocacy organization working to ensure that students in the Worcester Public Schools are given the opportunity to succeed at the highest possible level and to acquire the skills and knowledge to master the challenges of the 21st century. The Collaborative is committed to supporting, facilitating, and developing a wide variety of partnerships among families, schools, organizations, and businesses that will both enhance the quality of public education in Worcester and the quality of our common life. As a non-profit education fund, the Collaborative’s independent voice speaks for the children and for the community to create a system of effective schools in which every child is prepared for success in college, career, and life.
The work of the Collaborative flows from the belief that excellence results from a meaningful partnership among schools, families, and the community. In its multiple roles as convener, disseminator of best practices, supportive critic, partner, and incubator of leaders, the Collaborative supports this belief through programs, initiatives, and events that inform, equip, and energize all segments of our city in support of our schools and our children.
We advance our mission by serving as:
- Partner to the public schools
- As advocate for and champion of schools, teachers, and students
- As a disseminator of best and promising practices in education for all children
- As a supportive critic of our schools and our community in the work to educate children
- And as an incubator of leaders
We are an intermediary organization that brings all sectors of our community together to work on behalf of our children and our schools.
We are located at:
484 Main Street, Suite 300
