What impact do kids have on the business environment? How can people of faith make a difference outside of their churches, mosques, and temples? With all of the policies and programs active in our community to help children thrive, why aren’t we making more progress? And what can we do today that will make our society—and our children’s lives—better in 2024?
In celebration of our tenth anniversary, The Children’s Agenda is harnessing the thinking of leaders in our community to answer these questions and more. Our ultimate goal? To make progress in how people—like you—can join us in removing the most pressing systemic barriers to help improve the lives of children and youth in our community. We want to make the next 10+ years a decade of change—so all our children bloom in mind, body, and spirit.
We started this idea in June with our post from guest authors Rod Cox-Cooper and Jackie Campbell of the Black Male Achievement Coalition. They addressed the problems we face with race and disparity on both a local and national level, and called for our whole community to collaborate and “push forward without apology.”
Over the next ten months, you’ll hear from leaders of diverse sectors in our community—like health care, business, faith, education, and others. They’ll share their experiences and insights around improving the success of our county’s youth—and what you can do to help.
Check back soon for the next post from a leader driving change for kids.
