The projects presented in the ten innovations areas are all designed to address barriers to vital services. Action teams should review all projects and prioritize those that have the best chance of addressing the barriers identified in the 100% New Mexico countywide survey. Your collaborative and result-focused local work is nothing less than heroic.

Project: Early Childhood Learning.7.1
Project 1: The “Early Childhood Learning For U” project
Just like with the K–12 students, colleges and universities are important places for early childhood learning programs, including for research and training of early childhood learning educators. While not all higher ed institutions are set up to do this, it’s worth asking whether the local college or university devotes any time, research or other resources ensuring that their students and staff have access to campus-based early childhood learning in its many forms. This project assesses all colleges and universities in the region to measure support.
