Children's Wellbeing

Ashoka and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation have partnered to catalyze a movement through a network of leaders who are driving a new vision for the field of children’s wellbeing in the United States. We believe that kids thrive when they grow up with a strong sense of self, purpose, and belonging, and that these ‘building blocks’ of wellbeing help children form healthy relationships, show resilience in the face of trauma, and make thoughtful choices.
