This Committee has members from local organizations that impact the lives of children and families in Santa Fe, particularly during the important early childhood years (prenatal through 5 years old). 

We know that local resources can be improved by engaging your power, ideas, and experiences. We need diverse voices to make positive change for our community. 

Through a combination of in-person and virtual meetings throughout 2023, the SF FLC will spend time:

    • Connecting values and passions to a clear goal for change
    • Creating a list of priorities for progress
    • Reflecting on the importance of diverse opinions and voices
    • Defining the challenges for families in our community
    • Strengthening natural skills as a leader
    • Learning how to build collective power around a goal for change
    • Engaging in interesting and energizing conversations 
    • Earning $50 per hour for time and effort with the Council
