Priorities for Montgomery County’s Children

> Priorities for Montgomery County’s Children

A blueprint guides the Collaboration Council’s work on behalf of Montgomery County’s children, youth and families.

Established in 1998, The Children’s Agenda identifies a common mission and shared goals for children.

A collaborative effort forged with community involvement and political will, this agenda is the foundation for decisions made by the Collaboration Council.

Its priorities are:

  • Healthy children
  • Young children ready for school
  • Success for every student

  • Young people making smart choices

  • Children safe in their home, school and community
  • Communities that support family life
