The Center keeps abreast of news reports, articles, media interviews, videos, documentaries, educational materials, collaborative reports, books, policy updates, and policy briefs that have relevance to urban children and the issues that impact them.  


We have found many of these materials to be informative and enlightening.  The information gleaned can be utilized in many aspects of your work with urban children.  


As we work to establish our urban child electronic clearinghouse, we will use our website as a repository for some of these materials.  Please check back as we continue to update the site with additional materials.
