Support Kids First & Our Student Technology Initiative
Kids First, launched by The Children’s Guild Alliance, is a new vision to guide our future—a bigger vision, a fresh vision, a vision based on brain-based research, on the power of culture to transform, and on our track record of success. We need a new vision for children in America because the world has changed. For all children to thrive, they need an education adapted to serving the whole child and adapted to each child’s gifts, talents, and needs.
With COVID-19 distance learning, we are currently working to reduce the digital divide to ensure that every student in our schools has access to technology. We have embarked on a special and time-sensitive project putting Kids First during this crisis— supplying Chromebooks and internet access.
Countdown to the Virtual Celebration!
- Provides social and emotional support
- Assures success in life, not just in the classroom
- Accounts for the environment in which a child lives
The reality is that we do not put kids first in this country. If we did:
- No child would attend a poorly equipped, substandard school
- No child’s diagnosed needs would go untreated
- No child in crisis would be ignored and become part of a system that turns them into a statistic
Kids First is an opportunity for you to join forces with thousands of other like-minded individuals to change the narrative for children who depend on us for their future.
To realize the vision of putting Kids First, we must enlist the support of parents, grandparents, educators, and leaders of every sector of society—business, government, and faith communities.
We want to engage as many people as we can in the greatest cause we can imagine: the future of our children.
Giving every child a chance to succeed requires the advocacy of leaders at every level of our society—government, business and the community. It requires mobilizing parents, educators, child-serving professionals, and even kids to aggressively advocate for actions that protect, enhance, and support children.
Launching a national movement requires resources to create a standard for innovation and excellence. Your commitment will fuel the Kids First movement.
