2020 Trying together

Mission Statement

Trying Together supports high-quality care and education for young children by providing advocacy, community resources, and professional growth opportunities for the needs and rights of children, their families, and the individuals who interact with them. Trying Together works regionally (in Southwestern Pennsylvania) and takes its expertise and models to statewide and national audiences.

About Trying Together

By 2027, Trying Together will sustain a culture of belonging within its staff and Board of Directors and with families, educators, and community partners that values curiosity and collaboration, and nurtures a community of accountability and continuous learning. With this ecosystem in place, Trying Together will be:

  • A trusted source for families to collaborate with regarding their child's early experiences.
  • An experienced facilitator of inclusive learning opportunities for educators that aims to ensure every child has access to high-quality early care and education.
  • A collaborative convener that coordinates and helps to connect systems to support early care and education. 
  • A committed advocate mobilizing for policy change alongside communities to elevate the needs of young children, families, and educators for an equitable early care and education system. 
  • An accountable nonprofit that prioritizes ethics when raising funds in support of its mission and provides transparent stewardship to its donors.
