Bright by Text

Connecting with Wyoming Families for Community and Learning


There is an overwhelming amount of information out there on raising children, what to do and how to do it; but not all of it is very helpful – or very accessible.

Now, Wyoming has access to accredited information sourced from expert sources such as ZERO TO THREE, PBS, and the CDC. It’s free, and delivered right to your mobile device.

Bright by Text is a nationwide nonprofit organization offering a bilingual, free text messaging service that connects families with resources, community events, and education about their child’s development. The content Bright by Text sends is curated by the ages of your children and includes hyper-local community updates.

When families use Bright by Text, they are empowered by information, which allows them to build relationships with their children, engage in healthy development, and improve school readiness.

What are the messages about?
