    Known as the "Switzerland of Data", the Providence Plan analyzes data to leverage systemic change. In addition to the different interactive maps available to residents, community organizations, and policymakers alike, the Providence Plan runs three programs: YouthBuild, Ready to Learn, and Building Futures. With the data providing the roadmap for effective interventions, these initiatives are transforming the workforce development and education landscape in Providence.

    Pat McGuigan (Providence Plan Executive Director), Leslie Gell (Director of Ready to Learn), and Andrew Cortes (Director of Building Futures) share how operating as a "think and do tank" leads to authentic change.
