Local Advisory Committees

One of the projects of the Partnership for Children is called the School Readiness Community Based Initiative. The goal of this initiative is to assist communities in developing plans to increase the number of children entering kindergarten ready to succeed. Local advisory committees formed in Liberty, Southmont, Archdale/Trinity, Franklinville and Randleman.

The local advisory committees complete data collection and needs assessments and develop written plans for services in their respective areas.  In Liberty, Randleman and Franklinville, the local advisory committees continue to have input into decision making.  The Southmont Pre-K, Franklinville Parents as Teachers and the Liberty Early Childhood Center all grew out of local advisory committee planning grant activities.

All local advisory committees would be delighted with a targeted financial contribution to help provide more early childhood services in their communities. Visit the Make a Donation section of this website for details.

Success By 6® Local Advisory Committee

The Success By 6® local advisory committee is the Partnership’s oldest local advisory committee in Randolph County. The group began when United Way of Randolph County received a Success By 6® planning grant in 1999 to target the Randleman area in the same year that the Partnership for Children was forming. In 2000, United Way placed the group under the umbrella of the Partnership for Children. This local advisory committee assists with raising funds through the annual Great NASQUACK Duck Race, recruits volunteers, conducts special community outreach efforts, and recognizes centers and homes who achieve star ratings. The committee also facilitates Jumpstart, a three-week kindergarten transition program offered in the summer at Randleman Elementary for rising kindergarteners who have not had a preschool experience.
