Key Principles of JDC's Child Intervention Impact Network

1) In order to help young children, it is vital to help families. JDC’s Child Intervention Impact Network is relentlessly committed to understanding the greater context in which children live and directs interventions in ways that holistically improve their lives.  For example, we work with local Jewish communities to provide employment training and placement for parents of the children in the program.  JDC’s Child Intervention Impact Network has also provided material help in the form of food and housing support.

2) JDC’s Child Intervention Impact Network programs must foster secure attachments between children and caring adults. The importance of a strong and loving adult in a child's life is incontestable, and the quality of the caregivers, particularly their warmth and consistency, are of utmost importance. 

3) Self-control, mindfulness and resilience are key skills for children to learn at an early age. Learning to navigate difficult situations is an important social skill.  Through conflict resolution education, JDC’s Child Intervention Impact Network teaches children how to handle stressful situations and conflict peacefully.  

4) Young minds need to be constantly stimulated with new ideas and experiences through stories, toys, food, playtime and conversation. JDC's Child Intervention Impact Network makes a difference by supporting and working with local Jewish communities to provide enriching programming.
