Stand for Children
Stand for Children believes every child deserves an equal opportunity to succeed in life. Education is the key that unlocks the door to success, but far too many children at the bottom of the economic ladder are not getting the education they need to rise. Those at Stand are passionately committed to righting this wrong and to giving every child a path to a good job and a good life. Their mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, college or career training. To make this happen they educate and empower parents, teachers and community members to demand excellent schools; advocate for effective local, state and national education policies and investments; and ensure the policies and funding they advocate for reach classrooms and help students.
