Children & Youth Partnership for Dare County is a private, non-profit organization designed to provide programs and services to children and their families in Dare County. Created following a State of the Child Conference in 1994, the organization was charged with focusing on issues brought forward at that conference, and worked to establish the Wright Place for Youth and the Dare County Youth Center. In 1997, the Partnership began administering North Carolina's nationally recognized Smart Start Early Childhood program for Dare County, and today offers a variety of programs and resources to ensure the healthy development of all children from birth to five years of age.
Be sure to Save the Date for our 8th Annual KidsFest. It will be held on Friday, May 8th from 9:30 to 12:30.
We are currently looking for sponsors and exhibitors for this wonderful event for young children.

Thank you to everyone that joined us for the State of the Child Conference on September 26th! It was exciting to see such a great turnout of a wonderful cross-section of our community. We all gathered to learn how focusing on growing positive community norms can help Dare County be an even better place to live and raise kids. Many thanks to everyone that made this event a success! Stay tuned for information about some next steps and follow up report to our community.
What's so important about the first 2,000 days?
There are only 2,000 days between the time a baby is born and when that child shows up for the first day of Kindergarten.
