Geneva 2030


Geneva 2030

When an entire community comes together to support its youth, the results can be truly transformative.

Since 2011, Geneva 2030, a collective impact initiative, has worked to harness the resources of the entire Geneva community—nonprofit organizations, businesses and individuals—to support the education of Geneva’s children from the “cradle to career.” We have worked with community members and the Geneva City School District to identify these key areas to support our children:

  • Kindergarten readiness (age 0-5 development)
  • Literacy Success
  • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Design and Math) Success
  • Graduation Rate Improvement
  • College and Career Readiness
  • Spanish + English Bilingual Education: VAMOS Geneva 2030

There have been great strides since 2011, highlighted by an increase in the graduation rate from 70.7 percent to 84.9 percent, but there is still much to do. Please consider offering your time, talent and treasure to support Geneva’s youth.

Vamos Geneva 2030

Dedicated to supporting Spanish + English bilingual education and successes for the bilingual population of Geneva, New York.

Made up of a group of caring and compassionate individuals, Vamos Geneva 2030 is a platform created by the Bilingual Education Action Team, a committee that meets monthly to support the goals of Geneva 2030, Hobart and William Smith Colleges' collective impact initiative dedicated to increasing success rates for students in Geneva, NY.

The 2019 Community Report displayed disparities across cultures and language proficiency, specifically for the Spanish-speaking population of Geneva, when it came to graduation rates and literacy test scores. Our goals include finding ways to better support Hispanic and Limited English Proficiency students in order to ensure engagement, building connections and support throughout their academic career.

The Action Team engages with stakeholders, reviews Geneva City School District data regarding graduation rates, and harnesses collaborative ideas with other Action Teams (attendance, school success, STEAM, literacy, and college/career readiness) to maximize potential to increase graduation rates for bilingual youth.
