Welcome to Black Child Development Institute – Atlanta Affiliate (BCDI-ATL), an affiliate of the National Black Child Development Institute, Inc. Established in 1971 NBCDI exists to improve and advance the quality of life of Black children and their families. This nonprofit organization has worked to improve child welfare services, make universal early care and education a reality, build family support services, press for educational reform and provide vital information regarding our children’s health.
To achieve our mission, BCDI works with our national NBCDI and reaches out to our partners and constituencies, reflecting our belief that leadership can and should be nurtured at the local level; that families and children at the local level can best articulate their needs; and that by working together with the professional community, state and local government, and the private sector we can make a difference.
Preparing our children to function in a global society where having access to the latest technology is considered the norm makes education extremely critical to our future work. Every child deserves a chance, and we are committed to uncovering every chance available to our children.
