The growing success of Children’s Week in recent years is largely due 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 has unified more than 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 in each community across the state.

The Children’s Week Coordinator Toolkit supplies you with all of the information and resources that you need for your event to have an impact in your local community. This toolkit includes sample invitations, letters, proclamations, press releases, event instructions, deadlines and information on how to promote your event to the media. Please download the Children’s Week Coordinator Toolkit and utilize other toolkits and information listed below..
