In 2017 New Hampshire became the 28th Pyramid Model State. With funding support from the Endowment for Health , a State Leadership Team (SLT) was established with NH leaders from public and private organizations concerned with the social-emotional development of young children and their families. The SLT has worked closely with the Pyramid Model Consortium to develop a comprehensive strategic plan for statewide implementation of the Pyramid Model and complete the exploration/planning stage for each of the Pyramid Model key structures (state leadership team or SLT; a master cadre of training and TA professionals; behavior specialists; implementation programs and communities; and data and evaluation systems).
The Pyramid Model SLT Pyramid Model SL established the following vision and mission statements to guide it’s work:
Vision Statement: All New Hampshire families, early childhood programs and communities have the capacity to support the social emotional wellbeing of infants and young children.
Mission Statement: The New Hampshire Pyramid Model State Leadership Team will lead the development of a sustainable, complementary state and local infrastructure for the implementation of the Pyramid Model framework.
