Build Public Will
To grow and sustain the focus on Guilford County’s youngest children, it’s critical to align local policies, practices, and funding to meet the community’s needs. Four teams have been established to advance this work.
The teams are:
- Public policy – Sets direction and makes recommendations to support changes to local and state policies, practices, and funding to sustain the early childhood system under development in Guilford County. This includes developing a policy agenda to address (and not exacerbate) racial disparities for our county’s youngest children.
- Communication – Seeks out opportunities to educate others about the importance of early childhood and creates materials and resources to support our work.
- Faith community outreach – Developing a plan to leverage the many ways faith communities can support families with infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
- Advisory – Working to educate the community about the Guilford Basics.
