Education & Youth

FSG’s Education & Youth team partners with foundations, university systems, national nonprofits, school districts, and corporations to improve academic and developmental outcomes for youth. We help our clients develop and evaluate strategies that support children along the cradle to career continuum.

Education & Youth Projects


  • Strategic and business planning
  • Evaluation and organizational learning
  • Workshop facilitation
  • Collective impact structuring and coaching
  • Systems change structuring and coaching

Our work spans the education continuum and includes:

  • Early care and education
  • K-12 (including out of school time)
  • Postsecondary education
  • Workforce development
  • Juvenile justice
  • Corporate involvement in education

Our board really appreciated engaging with FSG to perform a comprehensive strategic planning project. The team was knowledgeable, creative, and responsive. We came away with strong, actionable recommendations, and felt like it was a great investment of our limited funds.

FSG let us be very involved all along the way and they were open to our feedback. That collaboration made us feel very confident that we would not end up with an evaluation that in some way could be misread. They were very collaborative, very responsible, and very responsive.
