Your Guides Through the Course


Your guides through “A Child’s Right to Survive and Thrive” are course developers Dr. Katherine Ortega Courtney and Dominic Cappello, co-directors of the Anna, Age Eight Institute, developers of the 100% New Mexico initiative and co-authors of Anna Age Eight: The data-driven prevention of childhood trauma and maltreatment and 100% Community: Ensuring 10 vital services for surviving and thriving.

Why should I enroll?

Our young people are navigating a traumatized and traumatizing society. Children and students endure adverse childhood experiences, family trauma, and social adversity in the form of racism, classism, and barriers to ten vital services for surviving and thriving. Our mission is to ensure that each community reflects the positive social determinants of health which are represented by these ten vital services. This groundbreaking work requires a radical change in how our local and state institutions enrich home, school, and community environments across each county.

The lessons housed within A Child’s Right to Survive and Thrive provide an urgently needed course correction, steering society from apathy and anger toward problem-solving and altruism. Your participation in the courses can provide you with the insights, skills, and resources to engage fully with the 100% New Mexico initiative. We welcome you to the nation’s first course designed to ensure all infants, children, and youth can thrive in fully-resourced and caring families and communities.
