Get Ready for the 16th Annual COBI (Children, Our Best Investment)
On January 21, 2014, more than 300 children will converge on the Indiana Government Center for a full day of legislative learning. Children will tour the Indiana Statehouse, be updated on the latest bills being debated, and have a chance to meet their legislators.
Children, Our Best Investment (COBI) is an annual advocacy day dedicated to introducing children to and educating them about the legislative process. The end goal is to teach children how to have a stronger voice in their communities and to speak publicly about issues that affect them.
Registration is still open for children and chaperones.
COBI is the biggest youth advocacy event of the year. Many youth-serving organizations throughout central Indiana come together to sponsor this event and give children the confidence to make a difference in the policies that are passed each legislative year. Children's Bureau is one of the main sponsors, having led the initiative for the first 13 years.
