Who We Are

Collaborative, justice-minded, and impact-oriented partners in the public sector.

Afton Partners creates meaningful change in our communities by transforming public policies and practices so they are effective, sustainable, and serve those who need it most. By partnering with public agencies and nonprofits in K-12 education, workforce development, early childhood, and human services, Afton builds capacity, strengthens governance, and ensures resources are aligned and equitably distributed. We prioritize taking on initiatives with the potential to rectify racial and social opportunity gaps nationwide. Since 2011, Afton has collaborated on more than 150 initiatives in 38 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, unlocking human potential from birth to career.

Core Values

Prioritize justice.

We recognize the impact of historical injustice and inequity, particularly for persons of color, and are committed to prioritizing justice. We take on public sector initiatives that have the potential to identify and rectify racial and social opportunity gaps in our country.

Act with integrity.

We hold ourselves accountable to high standards and work diligently on behalf of our clients and the people they serve. We are honest, positive, and proactive in our pursuit of solutions and meaningful change.

Collaborate inclusively.

We work together with our colleagues, clients, and constituents in ways that value diverse perspectives, opinions, and ideas. We work humbly and believe answers exist in the communities being served – it is our job to support our public sector partners in uplifting them.

Center human experience.

We focus on the human experience in our interactions and in our considerations of public sector solutions. We know the potential for our work to dramatically alter human lives. We therefore seek to deeply understand the lived experiences of those most likely to be impacted by our work.

Be well.

We value work-life balance and provide space for our colleagues and clients to bring their whole selves to work. We support each other, uplift each other, and have fun along the way.

We're your team of experts.
