Vision Statement

We envision a nation and world:

  • where all children, regardless of race, class, age, nationality, religion, or ability can be guaranteed life, health, safety, education, development and freedom from discrimination;
  • that recognizes children and youth as its most precious resource in an increasingly interconnected global community and that acknowledges their healthy development as one of its priorities;
  • where the rights of children and their families are ensured and protected - where governments and communities around the globe fulfill their leadership responsibilities by partnering with parents to provide them with policies, resources, and tools that will help them fulfill their crucial childrearing responsibilities; and
  • where children are prepared to meaningfully participate in a democratic society and are free to offer their talents in the service of humanity.
