Building Bright Futures’ role in the Early Childhood Action Plan
BBF is the statewide nonprofit, public-private partnership focused on improving the well-being of young children and families by improving the system that serves them. BBF is also the designated Vermont Early Childhood Advisory Council to the Governor, Administration and Legislature. Therefore, there is no better steward than BBF to ensure the Early Childhood Action Plan’s mission “to ensure the state’s children grow up happy, healthy and ready for a lifetime of learning” is realized. BBF tracks the progress of the Early Childhood Action Plan and archives Action Plan materials on this website. The Building Bright Futures (BBF) State Advisory Council (SAC) can assist in resolving conflicts and help accelerate the progress of the Action Plan.
- Act as a sounding board or consultant on ideas or conflicts within the Early Childhood System and ensure alignment of concepts with the Vermont Early Childhood Action Plan.
- Assist in aligning statewide initiatives with the Early Childhood Action Plan.
- Provide the affirmations needed for the Vermont Early Childhood Alliance application – the first step in promoting your policy issue at the state legislative level.
- Direct early childhood system issues to the appropriate regional or statewide workgroups.
