Read by 4th

School and life prospects dramatically improve for children who read at grade level by the start of 4th grade.

As the lead strategy and creative consultants for the Philly-based Read by 4th campaign, the nation’s most comprehensive early literacy campaign, we are helping an unprecedented collective of 100+ local partners double the number of students surpassing this critical milestone.

In 2017, the percentage of 3rd graders reading on grade level jumped by five points from the year before, surpassing statewide gains.

School District of Philadelphia

Public education is a public covenant—one that our nation sometimes struggles to live up to.

Mighty Engine works to improve educational outcomes and transparency by helping Philly public schools communicate more effectively with their most important partners: the families of the more than 128,000 children under their charge. Central to this has been the creation of the District’s first branding guidelines and communications plan.

Current projects include reimagining School Profiles on the District’s website to provide families and advocates with the timely information they need to support student learning and advocacy, and strategic communications to promote on-time kindergarten registration.

Fund for the School District of Philadelphia

In these resource-constrained times, it takes new thinking and creative approaches to ensure our students have what they need to thrive.

That’s why we work with the Fund to best position efforts like the successful Right Books campaign and created the initial concept for FUNDamentals, which allows the private sector and individual donors to contribute to a school’s specific goal.

Watch out for the upcoming Class of Philadelphia campaign for Philly Alumni, a citywide network encouraging alumni to come together, celebrate and support the next generation of students.

The Fellowship: Black Male Educators for Social Justice

When students are taught by quality educators who look like them, research shows they care more about—and do better in—school.

It was our pleasure to help rightfully position the Fellowship’s efforts around their social justice imperative of tripling the number of highly effective Black male educators to 1,000 by 2025.

With our help, the Fellowship doubled the number of expected attendees at the first national Black Male Educators Convening.

Center for Nonviolence
and Social Justice

Far too many young people suffer from traumatic stress. Many unknowingly.

The longer people go without understanding what’s happening to them, the more missed opportunities there are for healing. Which is why we’re partnering with CNSJ to pilot a public education campaign and new approaches to trauma-informed care.

Working directly with CNSJ heads, Drs. John Rich and Ted Corbin, national leaders in trauma-informed approaches, our goal is to shift the conversation around violence prevention away from punishment and toward understanding and healing.

Philadelphia Department
of Public Health

Fitness should not be a luxury available only to the affluent.

Working closely with DPH, we helped developed PhillyPowered, an award-winning, citywide public education campaign encouraging all Philadelphians to get and stay healthy by taking advantage of free and low-cost activities in their neighborhoods.

We also helped launch the City’s first Health Justice Summit, bringing together community organizations, government agencies, businesses and universities to address health disparities throughout Philadelphia’s neighborhoods.

Mental Health Partnerships

 

Healing through community.

We helped one of the region’s oldest and largest mental health service providers refresh their brand and messaging to better reflect their long-held core beliefs in the power of peer-to-peer counseling, advocacy and self-directed care.

The “Together, We Hope” video shows why Mental Health Partnerships remain at the forefront of transforming mental health services, what’s possible when we take the heart and continually apply what we learn from the people we serve.

 
 

ImpactPHL

Blurring the lines between charity, community and commerce.

As Philadelphia takes a leadership role in the new “impact economy,” our work with ImpactPHL is raising awareness around the collective and real value of impact entrepreneurship and investing.

More than 250 businesses have taken the Best for PHL Challenge, which encourages, supports, and recognizes companies in the Philadelphia region that commit themselves to addressing regional, social, or environmental issues.
