Connected Lane County is a local nonprofit striving to create student success from pre-Kindergarten through high school graduation, and beyond.

We seek to eliminate the predictability of outcomes by students’ race, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and geographic location. About our mission >

Our Impact on the Community

Our Work

We partnered with Dialogues in Action starting in 2019 to analyze our impact in the Lane County community, spending months compiling data and interviewing Elevate participants. It’s a comprehensive look at how Connected Lane County has influenced our community.


What We Do

Applied Learning

By connecting schools and districts to industry partners, Connected Lane County helps students understand the application of their in-classroom learning and prepares them for their postsecondary lives and careers through out-of-classroom experiences, career-connected learning, and educator enrichment.

Success Stories

“I was like, okay, what I’m doing is helpful. I mean, you’re guiding these kids to their future, and so many of them, especially being down here, they don’t even have a clear path of what they want to do. Those tours give me an opportunity to give them insight into things they might want to do for their life.”
