Colorfest Run To Benefit First Steps

Nearly one in seven SC children are assessed as not ready for first grade. In some communities, this statistic is as poor as one in four, or greater. Research studies repeatedly show that children who arrive unprepared for first grade’s challenges have a difficult time catching up and succeeding throughout the rest of their school years. Many of these students drop out of school or do not find fulfilling productive jobs after high school as a result of their slow start. County partnerships represent First Steps at the local level. Every South Carolina county has a First Steps partnership comprised of business and community leaders, early education professionals, parents, faith-based and agency partners. The partnerships work to identify local needs, resources, and collaborative opportunities. Each partnership offers different First Steps services, depending on the needs of that county. With their unique ability to identify and fill gaps in services to young children, First Steps partnerships are able to efficiently tailor program efforts to local communities and reach children and their families where they live.
