Our Collective Impact + Your Support

Our mission is to give Teton County’s preschool and after-school children safe places to become a generation that will sustain Teton County’s economy, health, and emotional wellness. And to provide a meaningful place for thoughtful donors to have the most impact on the future of Teton County’s highest-risk children.
Your donations will be used to broaden access and opportunity for the children that might otherwise become our community’s biggest concerns. Instead, they’ll be part of the solution.

To give at-risk children constructive places to congregate and grow that smooth out income disparities, improve quality of life, and decrease already-good crime rates in Teton County.

Despite a massive income disparity, Teton County violent crime rates remain more than 24 percent below the national average.
Its property crime rates stand about 32 percent lower.

This is in part due to the early education ecosystem at Children’s Learning Center, Teton Literacy Center, and the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum that studies have shown to marginalize problems among the most at-risk children.
