Communities for Children is a partnership between state government and 61 local communities (representing 221 towns and over 70% of the state’s population) for the purpose of supporting and increasing the prevention of poor outcomes for children, as well as promoting positive child and youth development. The 61 participating "Partner Communities" are each creating a Children’s Leadership Council, made up of key leaders in the community, including youth. These Children’s Leadership Councils are then assessing the realities facing children and youth in their community, developing prevention programs and policies, and tracking the results of their work. The statewide initiative is responsible for helping these communities by providing training, technical assistance, and opportunities for networking with each other.
