No matter what area you care most about, consider this: Children, teens and communities thrive when we recognize that development cuts across domains, settings, and disciplines. It's all related—a family's struggle with finances can affect a child's health; what a teen does after school has a big impact on how well he or she learns, and several longitudinal studies show that when states invest in early learning, they spend less in special education and juvenile justice services.
