About Building Bright Futures

Building Bright Futures (BBF) is Vermont’s early childhood public-private partnership charged under Title 33, Chapter 46, and the Federal Head Start Act (Public Law 110-134) as Vermont’s Early Childhood State Advisory Council (SAC) and network, the mechanism used to advise the Governor and legislature on the well-being of children in the prenatal period through age eight and their families. BBF’s mission is to improve the well-being of children and families in Vermont by using evidence to inform policy and bringing voices together across sectors and within regions to discuss critical challenges and problem-solve. BBF maintains the vision and strategic plan for Vermont’s Early Childhood System. Vermont’s vision for the Early Childhood System is to be an integrated continuum of comprehensive, high quality services that is equitable, accessible, and will improve outcomes for each and every Vermont child in the prenatal period to age eight and their families. BBF’s Network infrastructure includes 12 Regional Councils, seven VECAP Committees, and the State Advisory Council.

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.
