Because Childhood Lasts a Lifetime.

Growing Better Together

During this back-to-school season, Prevent Child Abuse America is working to Grow a Better Tomorrow for All Children—with your help!

With students returning to school this fall, many for the first time in more than a year, real-world school settings will also return to being important environments to support healthy child development. Students will face a variety of emotions, opportunities, and challenges. You play a central role in preventing risks for adversity. When you help plant seeds of change in a child’s life, you can help improve their health, ability to learn, and behavior.

Every child deserves to grow up in a bountiful, safe community. We want to see how you are working to cultivate safe, stable, nurturing relationships, connections, and environments that help every child thrive.


How do you grow a better tomorrow for all children?

Social media helps shape the world we live in. When you share how you work to Grow a Better Tomorrow with your friends, family, and associates, you spread important actions to protect all children and strengthen all families.  Check out the #GrowingBetterTogether photos below and join in by sharing a photo to show how you take action in your community!

You can help continue to plant the seeds of change during Back-to-School and beyond.

  • Just like plants need good soil to grow, positive childhood experiences in nurturing environments provide fertile ground for physical and mental health, learning, and social skills to flourish.
  • It is more important than ever to help positive childhood experiences take root in your community and across the country.
  • Mobilize your community and take action—so all of us are #GrowingBetterTogether!
