The Global Family Research Project is an independent, entrepreneurial nonprofit organization that supports all families and communities in helping children find success in and out of school. We create a worldwide exchange of ideas to further the understanding and implementation of anywhere, anytime learning for all
Since 1983, our team has provided leadership to promote strategies that build pathways for children’s whole development across all learning environments.
We connect research, policy, and practice to support a community of people dedicated to advancing children’s learning and development. We foster collaboration among child- and family-serving organizations so they can create equitable learning pathways across time and place. We strengthen knowledge and skills through technical assistance, professional development, and evaluation.
Education leaders, researchers, policymakers, funders, practitioners, and the media are among our partners in innovating family and community engagement strategies anywhere, anytime children learn.
