Stand for Children Leadership Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit leadership development and training organization. We train ordinary people to be effective citizen leaders capable of solving problems facing children, both locally and statewide, by convincing elected officials and voters to invest in and reform vital children’s programs. Our highly trained staff provide parents and others concerned about children’s issues with tools to achieve long-lasting improvements for children by joining together in a unified, grassroots voice.

Stand for Children Leadership Center exists because children in communities across America have no power to influence our democratic system to meet their fundamental needs. Our mission is to teach everyday people how to join together in an effective grassroots voice in order to win concrete, long-lasting improvements for children, at both state and local levels.
