The growing success of Children’s Week Florida is due largely to the collaborative nature of the event and the fact that many non-profits can come together under “One Voice” to support children’s issues and advocate for the full spectrum of children’s services and needs. Local coordinators plan and implement various events in their communities to symbolize the unity of Florida’s statewide child advocacy efforts.

Children’s Week Florida has unified upwards of 200 community events and activities statewide, bringing thousands of parents, children, legislators, professionals, community leaders and concerned citizens together to share valuable knowledge and information about children’s issues across the state.

The Children’s Week Florida Local Coordinator Toolkit supplies you with resource materials and to help make a greater impact and more meaningful local community event. This toolkit includes sample invitations, letters, proclamations, press releases, event instructions, deadlines and information on how to promote your event to the media.
