Bain will be partnering with Bridgespan to address the education crisis in the US and beyond. With over 40 education-focused pro bono engagements in the past three years, Bain is driving deep impact on a signature issue area. Noteworthy projects include:
Bain Employees in Chicago founded a charter school and provided an array of volunteer and financial support to Rowe Elementary School. Pro bono support included studying Charter School best practices and preparing the initial business plan that launched the school.
A founding thought partner of City Year since 1988, Bain was instrumental in the creation of City Year New York. Bain consultants have volunteered their time, not only in the playgrounds and classrooms of New York City at their annual service day, but also by helping formulating City Year’s five year strategic growth plan–helping them grow from 50 corps members in 2003 to 254 corps members in 2011.
Bain helped develop the strategy and business plan for launching StudentsFirst, the new organization founded by Michelle Rhee, a renowned public figure in the US education system. This in-depth plan has helped guide the initial launch and early success of the organization. StudentsFirst is leading a national movement to advocate for common sense reforms that accelerate student achievement.
