Initiatives and Goals

CNY Vitals would like to celebrate local initiatives that address education by featuring them and sharing their results on our website.  The initiatives and goals here meet a few criteria (if you think you have an initiative that would fit here please contact us at so we can include it!):

  • They are initiatives and ventures that are collaborative in nature
  • They are data-driven initiatives
  • They have some element of involvement from the public/client/constituents
  • They include transparent metrics and evaluation (we can share their results)
