Strong Foundations: The Economic Futures of Kids and Communities

March 23 - 24, 2017

About this event

Join us to explore the interplay between the development of kids and their communities.

Featured speakers include Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and former Harlem Children’s Zone CEO Geoffrey Canada.

Evidence shows kids with strong cognitive and social foundations are better-equipped to succeed in life and contribute to society at large. But recognizing that not all children have the same opportunities to grow and develop, how can we set young people on a strong course? At #CommDev2017, research from multiple disciplines will be presented in a dialogue with policymakers and community practitioners.
