Energizing a Children’s Cabinet in Time of Change

How do you continue the work of a children’s cabinet when your state gets a new governor? Florida handled that challenge by reinvigorating its Children and Youth Cabinet with a full-day retreat.

The June even informed newly appointed agency leaders about the on-going work of the Children and Youth Cabinet and armed cabinet members with strategies for how to improve outcomes for the Florida’s young people. Forum Policy Director, Elizabeth Gaines shared best practices for children’s cabinets and introduced the Ready by 21 Leadership Capacity Standards.
