What Is The Roadmap?

The East Side Aligned Roadmap is a living document that seeks to clarify and prioritize what the community desires and is committed to with regard to the readiness and well-being of our children and youth.


The Roadmap is also a call to the larger community to develop broader partnerships, set attainable goals, employ data driven decision making, and engage in bolder strategies. We are committed to moving beyond fragmented approaches, toward area-wide collaboration and accountability.


The Roadmap is an invitation to the community to make a commitment to work collaboratively to achieve the 2025 Goal of all children and youth within Greater East St. Louis being:

  • Healthy & Safe in their Environments

  • Socially Connected & Emotionally Secure

  • Successful in School, College & Work

  • Positively Engaged in their Community



The final version of The Roadmap is still in development. However, you can download the latest draft comprised of 14 sub-goals and over 180 strategies.
