Birth to 22 affirms a whole child approach to this collaborative work, focusing on six domains of child and youth development: physical health, behavioral health, academic readiness, social/emotional well-being, career readiness, and connection and contribution to community and society.
To support the healthy growth, development and education of our children and youth prenatal through young adulthood, so that they can graduate from high school and succeed in life.
Our Approach: Collective Impact
Collective impact is a framework to achieve social change through strategic collaboration. Through a common agenda, emphasis on equity, openness, and respect, we aim to foster ongoing collaboration and community engagement towards unprecedented positive outcomes in the lives of Palm Beach County youth.
Strengthening the Steps to Success
The leadership of Birth to 22 has created a strong coalition that leverages the existing resources and initiatives to engage the county’s diverse communities. We are committed to engage in proactive communication and in continuous evaluation to improve our systems and advance our mission.
This website fulfills our goals for transparency and ongoing community outreach. It aims to serve as a central depository of all Birth to 22 initiatives, activities, updates and measurements. In addition to a calendar of events and a services database for professionals in the field, this site will also include the final Youth Master Plan report, resources for program evaluation, and data dashboards. In order to meet our community's needs, the content of this website will continuously evolve as new information becomes available.
