Attention parents! Become a Parent Ambassador and make a real difference in the lives of children!

 

Parent Ambassadors learn advocacy, leadership, communications and engagement skills to become strong voices for young children Patty cakeand families in our state. They advocate and teach others about the importance of high-quality child care and early learning programs that benefit young children and help close the opportunity gap. Ambassadors receive training and support to become effective advocates and leaders. If selected, you will serve a one-year term that begins in March. All travel expenses are covered.

Being a Parent Ambassador is an outstanding opportunity to join a community of advocates who care passionately about expanding access to high-quality child care and early learning programs so that more families can benefit.
