Colorado business leaders, in partnership with nonprofit organizations and foundations, have a unique opportunity to band together to develop and implement a strategy to support current employee's and prepare tomorrow's workforce. The sooner children start on the right path, the greater the return to them and to society. The benefits build, one on top of the other. Through the work of EPIC we:
Educate the business sector on the importance of early childhood development and the implementation of Colorado's current programs for early childhood education, wellness, and care for children birth to age eight.
Equip the business sector with tactical approaches to increase the level of child and family support they provide to their employees and with corporate giving strategies to advance their investments in the early childhood sector.
Engage business leaders to be early childhood advocates and champions of the economic and societal benefits of investing in very young children.
Energize business leaders to lead a campaign to reform the allocation of and amplify Colorado's public and private resources to make the investment in very young children the highest priority at all levels of government.
