Thrive Chicago seeks to hire an Analyst to be part of a bold start-up enterprise that aligns services providers, city agencies, funding organizations, and non-profits around outcomes that are proven to help children succeed from cradle to career.


Thrive Chicago ( has used the StriveTogether Theory of Action as its approach to collective impact and building civic infrastructure. Collective impact relies on the actions of individuals to dramatically improve results at scale. Whether a funder, practitioner, community leader, volunteer, parent, guardian, or engaged citizen, there are actions anyone can take to support every child from cradle to career.

To accomplish its work along the cradle-to-career continuum, Thrive Chicago is changing the way adults collaborate to help young people succeed. Thrive Chicago priority strategies include:

  • Activate research and data – Identify and build awareness of promising practices that improve youth outcomes and local disparities across various demographic groups and geographies
  • Test and scale innovate practices – Work with and through Change Networks to understand and implement those practices that can lead to citywide change
  • Build capacity of leaders and practitioners – Ensure those working most closely with youth have the data, skills, partners, and resources they need to be successful

Thrive Chicago operationalizes its strategies through Change Networks – working groups that include key leaders from city agencies, nonprofits, funders, higher education and businesses that help individuals and organizations understand how they fit together. By using continuous improvement tools to analyze data, these teams pick strategies to undertake collectively and adjust if they are falling short.
