The American Federation for Children and AFC Growth Fund seek to empower families, especially lower-income families, with the freedom to choose the best K-12 education for their children.

Since 1997 Arizona has led the way, giving families the freedom to choose the best K-12 education for their children. Our Arizona bilingual team of Parent Education Advocate experts are always available to speak at no cost to parents, schools, or community groups about Arizona school choice programs. Please call us, send us a text or email us directly for more information at (623) 363-3759 or by email at emontenegro@federationforchildren.org. 

We work with Arizona families to help them decide the best education model for their individual child’s needs. We travel state wide to provide free, non-profit, non-partisan, advocacy and support. To speak to one of our experts and to find out what school choice resource is best for you.
