The Arlington Partnership for Children, Youth and Families Foundation is an outgrowth of the Partnership. A number of present and former APCYF board members determined that a nonprofit, charitable corporation is needed to raise and expend funds for Partnership projects that the county and school budgets cannot accommodate. Specific activities to be conducted by the APCYF Foundation are:
- Continuing support of the Carlin Springs Community School.
- A multi-faceted prevention campaign to delay the age of onset of alcohol use among Arlington youth
- Providing recommendations to the Boards (County and School) about public policy issues and resource allocation matters to improve the health, well-being, and safety of children, youth and families in Arlington County (Foundation’s mission)
