Aligned Impact Muscatine is a grant-funded initiative that uses the collective impact framework to address some of our community’s most pressing issues.

Aligned Impact Muscatine’s Leadership Council and community partners have been hard at work evaluating community data, surveying local programs and collaborations, and building strategy networks. Based on community data we know that we need to focus on early education, academic success, post-secondary completion, and the training of adults to meet workforce demands. If you are thinking this all sounds complex and challenging, you are correct. That is why so many community partners are coming together to address these issues. No one organization can do this alone. It is going to take all of us working together over a long period of time, but we know with the support of the community, we can achieve our goals. AIM’s three overarching goals are:

  • Increase the percentage of Muscatine students who graduate from High School.
  • Increase the percentage of post-secondary completion.
  • Increase training opportunities for adults to address unemployment and underemployment, to enable a workforce capable to sustain and grow Muscatine’s economy.
