How This Boss Makes an Impact for Children in Florida

Vance is a dedicated champion for early childhood education and development and strong advocate for early intervention from birth to five years of age. He has used his position as an elected official to encourage investment in early childhood education initiatives at the state level and creates partnerships between businesses, organizations and schools to further these initiatives. Vance believes the vision for education cannot be founded in remediation but instead in prevention: give children the health, education, and family support that serve as a strong foundation for future success.
