CWLA 2017 National Conference March 29, 2017
The CWLA National Blueprint vision is that all children will grow up safely, in loving families and supportive communities, with everything they need to flourish and with connections to their culture, ethnicity, race, and language. To achieve this vision, we are called to move from theory to implementation, and to share successful practices, tools, and resources that meet the needs of families, communities, and systems and contribute to improving outcomes for children and families. The 2017 CWLA National Conference, Advancing Excellence in Practice and Policy: Highlighting Successful Strategies to Address the Needs of Children, Youth, and Families is a prime opportunity for America’s new administration, influential service providers, leaders, advocates, youth, and families to meet and promote excellence in policy and practice toward today’s critical topics and their effect on children, youth, and families.
The conference will feature evidence-informed/based programs and practices, and related policies and tools that lead to successful implementation of practices, services, and programs, resulting in improved outcomes for children, youth, and families—and that are most likely to generate positive attention in the public policy context.
