Charlotte Donors Forum Luncheon
Join the next Donors Forum luncheon on Tuesday, April 9th for a presentation of the N.C. Early Childhood Action Plan led by Rebecca Planchard, Senior Early Childhood Policy Advisor, NC Department of Health and Human Services.
The NC Early Childhood Action Plan – What is it and How Charlotte Can Improve Outcomes for Young Children
Research clearly indicates the first years of a child’s life are critical. During this time, children undergo tremendous brain growth that impacts multiple areas of cognitive, physical, social, emotional, and behavioral development. Far too many young children in NC are experiencing challenges (i.e. living in poverty, infant mortality, food insecurity, time in foster care) that impede positive growth and development.
Commissioned by Governor Roy Cooper, The North Carolina Early Childhood Action Plan (ECAP) was released in February 2019 and provides a framework for galvanizing public and private action to achieve a bold vision and measurably improve outcomes for children ages birth to eight by 2025. The plan launched with a statewide kickoff that featured a keynote address by former Governor Jim Hunt and other proponents of early childhood development. ECAP prioritizes 10 goals focusing on improving outcomes related to the health, safety and well-being, and developmental and academic readiness for young children. The plan sets targeted goals to ensure the state’s 1.1 million children, of which 10% reside in Mecklenburg, will be healthy, safe and nurtured, learning and ready to succeed.
Join our next Donors Forum luncheon on Tuesday, April 9th for a presentation of the plan led by Rebecca Planchard, Senior Early Childhood Policy Advisor, NC Department of Health and Human Services. Rebecca will share key tenants of the plan and considerations for philanthropy interested in improving outcomes for the more than 100,000 young children, birth to eight, living in Mecklenburg County.
