Washtenaw Alliance for Children and Youth

September 29, 2009

I had the opportunity to attend a community forum this morning hosted by the Washtenaw Alliance for Children and Youth (WACY).  The mission of this group is to change how our community works together to ensure Washtenaw County school-aged children and youth reach their full potential.  It was great to see the room full of advocates for our children from throughout the county.

They shared a variety of data related to the indicators that have an impact on the lifelong success of our children.  The organization is built around the Ready for 21 approach which means children and youth receive the services, programs, and opportunities they need to be ready by age 21, for college, work and life.  WACY is currently developing an action plan to among other things, heighten community awareness of the needs of youth to fulfill their mission.
