We’re Empowering Iowans to Be the Voice for Kids

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

In 2019, volunteers across the state of Iowa visited over 100 presidential candidate events, getting all top-polling candidates to commit to invest in kids in their first 100 days in office if elected.
SCAN continues to work with our state and federal leaders to invest in quality, affordable child care and early child hood education so that all Iowa kids have a strong start in life.

We’re empowering everyday Iowans to be the voice for kids. 

Learn how we’re investing in Iowa’s future.
