Improving Children’s Lives

Livingston County United Kindergarten Readiness

CDA Graduates 612016Child Development Associates (CDA)

We empowered 28 local early childcare professionals with scholarships toward their first CDA certification. This credential can lead to higher wages and employability. Plus, CDA grads receive 11 free college credits from Washtenaw Community College if they continue their education in the early childhood field. — Great Start Livingston

Livingston County United Livingston Promise

We provided preschool scholarships to 10 families where quality early education had been out of reach. The children blossomed, and parents could pursue work or higher education.  The program’s goal for 2016 is assistance for at least another 10 to 12 children.

Livingston Council for Youth

The Council’s guiding principle is that every child should feel loved, empowered, safe and happy. Using the results of a county-wide survey of 7th, 9th, and 11th grade students, we will bring together community partners, students, parents, schools, businesses, and others to create and inspire a community-wide culture valuing youth and providing a solid foundation for their success.
