<p>Agenda for Children’s mission is to make Louisiana a state in which all children can thrive. Founded in 1984 as the state’s first independent child advocacy organization, Agenda has also served as the largest state provider of childcare resource and referral services in southeast Louisiana since 1989. Since our inception, Agenda has worked to improve child well-being in Louisiana through three key strategies: </p><p>advocating for better policies and programs to serve Louisiana’s children throughout the legislative and regulatory processes; </p><p>informing public discussions on children by monitoring the well-being of children at the state and parish levels through the KIDS COUNT project; and, </p><p>improving the quality of early childhood education through “on the ground” work in the early care and education sector in Southeast Louisiana, specifically by training practitioners, helping program administrators strengthen their organizational capacity, increasing access for families, and building public and private support for the work. </p><p>A trusted resource for policymakers, advocates, researchers, media representatives, youth serving nonprofit organizations, and early childhood professionals, Agenda is helping leaders, organizations, partnerships, and systems – at the local and state level – assess, improve, and align their practices and policies. Improving life outcomes for children is the vision that drives Agenda’s work.</p><p> </p>
