We’re Empowering Arkansans to Be the Voice for Kids

Arkansas citizens overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.

This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development.

We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.

Upcoming Events

SCAN volunteer advocates are on the ground throughout Arkansas, and gather once a month to plan how to make a difference for kids in their communities.

That meeting takes place online and/or on the phone the third Tuesday of every month.

For more information and to join, please contact Samantha Meyer at [email protected].
