Sesame Street in Communities

Founding Funder

As the founding funding partner for Sesame Street in Communities, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has been instrumental in this critically needed initiative. Major support from RWJF made possible the initial research and development phase for Sesame Street in Communities, and is expanding the reach of the initiative’s robust web-based platform and on-the-ground implementation activities to ensure access to Sesame Workshop’s time-tested resources for parents and providers across the US. Through this groundbreaking partnership, RWJF and Sesame Workshop are furthering a shared commitment to enhance the well-being of all children.
