What is a Shared Services Alliance?

  • Shared Services is a way to “feed” the core mission of an organization by pooling needs and sharing resources with others.

  • Shared Service Alliances improve outcomes for children by pooling resources to build organizational capacity, improve job quality, strengthen community partnerships and promote long-term sustainability.

  • While the design of any particular Shared Services Alliance is unique to its participants, all share the goal of strengthening business and pedagogical leadership across sites by creating structures to share staff, information and resources.
