The Partner Leadership Committee (PLC) is a cross-sector group of executives from more than a dozen partner organizations. It serves as the decision-making and accountability body on behalf of the partnership by working to:

Align individual and organizational actions and funding to support shared goals.

 Promote the effective use of data.

 Ensure shared accountability and coordinated action along the age continuum.

Advocate to better align funding around what works.

Following the organizational approach, the PLC believes that to achieve successful outcomes for all children, the entire community must work together to tackle the most pressing challenges and to take advantage of the biggest opportunities.
