2014 KIDS COUNT in Colorado! Presentations
Throughout the year, Children’s Campaign staff conduct locally relevant presentations on the current KIDS COUNT in Colorado! report in communities throughout the state. These presentations provide an opportunity for health, early childhood and K-12 education professionals, community and business leaders, legislators and staff, parents and other engaged citizens to come together and learn more about child well-being in their communities.
For more information about hosting a KIDS COUNT presentation in your community, contact our It's About Kids Network Coordinator, Liz Houston, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-620-4532.
