Small and Mid-Sized City Initiatives for Children, Youth and Families
Nomination Form and Survey
In early 2012, the National League of Cities Institute for Youth, Education and Families will publish a report on small and mid-sized city (populations under 75,000) initiatives to strengthen families and improve outcomes for children and youth. The report will not only highlight several cities that have implemented comprehensive plans to support children, youth and families, but will also feature innovative small city efforts in early childhood development, education and afterschool, family economic success, youth civic engagement, health and wellness, youth employment and improving outcomes for at-risk youth.
Municipal officials and staff are invited to nominate an example from their community to be included in this publication and to share their thoughts on the unique opportunities and challenges that small cities face in taking action on behalf of children and families. Please complete this form by the end of April 2012.
