to expand regional impact

CLI Advisory Boards support the mission to dismantle structural racism by providing Black and Latinx children with the anti-racist early literacy instruction, support, and advocacy needed to create equity in education. 

CLI seeks to build and sustain a strong group of advisors, ambassadors and advocates committed to our mission and are willing support CLI’s work in the community by:

  • Building awareness of CLI, its mission and impact across key regions;
  • Opening doors to partners, philanthropists and influencers who could support CLI’s mission;
  • Raising local dollars that will help CLI as it works with local school districts to get more children reading proficiently; and
  • Working with local leadership and CLI Staff to help strengthen CLI’s footprint and embeddedness in key regions.
