Child and Youth Policy Coordinating Bodies in the U.S.

Report

While child and youth coordinating bodies such as Children’s Cabinets, P-20 Councils, and Early Childhood Councils are critical in providing seamless, effective and efficient services to children and youth, there is little research on them. Which is why the Forum conducted the Ready by 21 State Policy Survey: Child and Youth Policy Coordinating Bodies in the U.S.: the first comprehensive biennial survey of state child and youth policy coordinating bodies, conducted with assistance from the RAND Corporation.

The study identified 110 coordinating bodies and reported initial findings on the breadth of their partnerships and goals, how well they use data, and their effectiveness in using innovative strategies to support children and youth.
