New Map of Coordinating Bodies Across the U.S.

Does your state have a child and youth coordinating body? The Forum's new map can tell you.
Information Update
January 4, 2012

The map identifies children's cabinets, P-20 councils, early childhood councils, and similar statewide entities that coordinate policy for young people. Based on the Forum's 2011 survey of coordinating bodies, the map contains the name and contact emails for lead coordinating body staff.

These entities are typically made up of the heads of all state government agencies with child- and youth-serving programs. They meet regularly to coordinate services, develop a common set of outcomes, and collaboratively decide on and implement plans to foster the well-being of young people in their states.
