Helping Those Who Help Children Succeed
The statistics are as abundant as they are alarming.
Children across the country, and in particular across our state, are falling well below the most basic measures of academic success and well-being. On the most respected national survey of child well-being, South Carolina ranks 45th among U.S. States and lacks consistency in improvements.
Many react to these findings by asking the same startled question: ‘how have so many children failed within our system?’
At the Institute for Child Success, we’re asking a different question: ‘how has our system failed so many children?’
This shift in focus, from failed students to a failed system, is pivotal given the scale and scope of the problem. It is also critical to understanding the work of the Institute for Child Success.
Creating Change that is Exponential
- ICS recognizes that the most effective way to improve the success of children isn’t one child at a time—but by improving the SYSTEMS that foster the health and education of our children.
- ICS supports service providers and advocates focused on early childhood development, healthcare, and education—all to coordinate, enhance, and improve those efforts for the maximum effect in the lives of young people.
- The Institute’s approach focuses on helping those who help children succeed.
Fostering the Success of All Children
At the Institute for Child Success, our primary goal is to create a culture that facilitates and fosters the success of all children.
The Institute’s three core pillars — Research, Advocacy, and Integration — support that goal. These pillars, and the programs that are dedicated to each, are the foundation of our groundbreaking, systems-based approach.
