“We bring people and organizations together to work on behalf of our children and our schools.”

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.
