On Thursday, September 24, 2020, our community hosted the 6th Annual Summit on Children. This community-driven, all virtual event was created to increase public/private business awareness, engagement and investment in early childhood programs that yield better outcomes for children and families, and ultimately the future of Leon County.

Over the course of now six years, nearly 5,000 community members, business owners, pediatricians, law enforcement, attorneys, judges, mental health providers, university faculty, district school administrators, childcare providers, child advocates, and the faith-based community have participated in Summit related events, learning from national and regional experts on best practices related to childhood success.

We had a spectacular line up of speakers and panelists for 2020 and are thankful to our many sponsors and partners. Access Recording Download Event Program
