Building Bright Futures (BBF) operates using a collective impact framework, which allows us to tackle complex social and systemic problems facing Vermont's children and families such as a lack of affordable childcare, adverse childhood experiences, and kindergarten readiness.

We envision an early childhood system where partners work together with shared vision, shared action and shared accountability; where regional tables are set for communities to problem solve, coordinate, and take action; where data drives decision making; and sensible state policy is informed by the wisdom of communities.
