Black Child Development Institute (BCDI)-Atlanta

Established in 1981, Black Child Development Institute (BCDI)-Atlanta coordinates community programs and initiatives in Atlanta and throughout the state of Georgia, supporting the focus areas of the National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI)—early childhood education, literacy, family engagement, child welfare, policy, and health.


For 46 years, NBCDI has been at the forefront of engaging leaders, policymakers, professionals and parents around critical and timely issues that directly impact Black children and families. With the support of the organization's volunteer-driven National Affiliate Network, NBCDI is committed to its mission "to improve and advance the quality of life for Black children and families through education and advocacy." NBCDI and its National Affiliate Network are non-profit organizations.


With the support of NBCDI and its local community partners, BCDI-Atlanta delivers high-quality resources that respond to the unique strengths and needs of Black children and their families. BCDI-Atlanta partners with children, families and organizations to implement culturally-relevant, culturally responsive, trauma sensitive and evidence-based programs promoting high-quality early care and education, literacy, health, and family engagement.
