We hear the phrase a lot, “it takes a village to raise a child”. The question that rarely gets asked is who we raise and prepare the village to raise the child. There are clearly conditions and combinations of factors that create the right environment to give children and youth a shot at the best possible outcomes. Raising the Village, an initiative of the Toronto Child and Family Network has done an excellent job putting together some great tools to support and measure our progress in raising both village and child. Take a look here, and share your experiences and tools as well. This is a great example of what #data can do!
What tools do you find the most useful/relevant here and how are you applying them?
