Launch Manistee is the Manistee County cradle-to-career educational initiative. Launch Manistee is a network of partners from education, business, government, human services, work force development, philanthropy, and other organizations. The Manistee County Community Foundation provides the administrative and fiscal management. A Leadership Team and three Action Teams with cross sector membership provide strategic and fiscal management. Launch Manistee has two date driven goals which establish the organizational focus and priorities:
Launch Manistee believes that quality preschool experiences have been proven to have long-term positive impacts on a student's success and continues to promote an increase in access for a high quality preschool experience through financial assistance and programming development.
Launch Manistee is a proud co-facilitator of the Manistee Early Childhood Collaboration (ECC), a committee member of the Manistee County Preschool Scholarship Committee, and the catalyst of the development and distribution of the Manistee County School Readiness pamphlet and guide (2018).
