Cradle to Career

Building Youth Success from Aspen to Parachute

Did you know? By age 4, low-income children can be 18 months behind their peers in cognitive and social skills with only ½ to ¼ the vocabulary. Many never catch up. Here in our valley community, 1 in 3 children are not prepared for kindergarten. Our valley can do better. ACF’S Cradle to Career Initiative builds youth success from Aspen to Parachute, serving the needs of over 22,000 children aged 0 -18 by bringing nonprofits, schools, business, government and philanthropy together to spur regional collaborative action that will ensure that children are ready for kindergarten and graduate from high school ready for college or career.

As the backbone organization for the Cradle to Career Initiative, ACF is guiding the vision and strategy, supporting aligned activities, building public will and mobilizing funding to advance the work of the Initiative. We have established a Cradle to Career Fund to support our efforts and help initiate and expand programs and services throughout our region.
