Strategic Planning – Survey Champions

For 25 years, First 5 Kern has been committed to supporting the healthy development of children aged 0-5 in Kern County. As we prepare for our next funding cycle in 2025, we need the community’s feedback in order to craft our Strategic Plan.

To reach as many families as possible, we want you to be a “Survey Champion” in order to help us spread our needs assessment survey far and wide throughout Kern County. By sharing our survey, our Champions will play a critical role informing where our investments go to support early childhood development.

Join our Survey Champions list today and help us make a difference in the lives of young children in our community. Learn more below, and send us an email to offer your organization’s help.
