Spanish term or phrase: policy outreach
It is a press release. We are talking about the "I am your child" foundation. The sentence is:

Through mass media, community mobilization, public education and policy outreach, parents and caregivers are learning how to make a difference in the lives of young children.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

English translation:actividades de extensión/de vulgarización/de divulgación
Explanation:
Given this particular context, I don't see that the word "policy" in the term says anything more than is normally inferred in the term "outreach activities." These activities are always carried out with a purpose: to explain/promote a particular viewpoint (i.e. policies). Consequently, I don't think there's any need to force "policy" into your translation.

Explanation:
My solution is more of an explanation, because a direct translation of "policy outreach" would not be understandable.

nuestra política de enlazar con la comunidad


Explanation:
Community outreach is more than information provided, it's setting up shop with community services in the target community. "Política" is the policy and "enlazar" is to "build ties with".

política de divulgación popular


Explanation:
I have suggested a very similar answer to the others, however, I have added "popular" because often these "outreach" programs are designed to reach persons in poverty (children in this case, it appears) that do not have the same access to information and services as do the average citizen and "to make a difference in (their) ... lives". Sometimes "outreach" is for ordinary persons who are not acquainted with some idea or policy, however in this case I believe the addition of "popular" is appropriate. Take a look at the below link. Hope it helps!
