Children need a voice. They don’t vote. They don’t hire lobbyists. They aren’t a special interest, but their interests are special. Their childhood outcomes enhance us or diminish us as individuals, communities and as a state.
What Do We Do & Where Are We Going?
It is our mission to develop and promote a state-level unified policy agenda that targets child health, education, safety, and family economic security. Specifically, we:
- Assess and research legislation, policy decisions, issues, and public voice.
- Develop statewide infrastructure; policy agenda, accountability reports; white papers.
- Promote and advocate policies, education and awareness.
- Coordinate and connect statewide and local efforts and networks.
Our vision drives us to work toward all Idaho children arriving at adulthood ready to succeed as individuals – in families and in the workforce.
