Looking for a challenging leadership opportunity? Interested in having your voice heard in policy discussions? Want to meet people who are as passionate about early childhood and school-age care as you? This opportunity is for you!

The CARE Collaborative is pleased to offer another year of the CARE (Child Care Advocates Ready to Emerge) Public Policy Fellowship (Year 15!) and continue working with professionals in the fields of early childhood and school-age care on how they can be effective advocates for themselves and the profession when engaging and educating policymakers at all levels of government.

This is an excellent leadership development opportunity for those who are interested in learning how to make an impact on public policies affecting the early childhood and school-age care fields.

The program begins in October 2020 and will include nine, once-a-month training sessions. Due to COVID-19, we do not know yet if these sessions will be held face-to-face, virtually or in a hybrid approach. Sessions include networking, mentoring, and hands-on projects to develop advocacy skills. The program is offered at no cost to participants.
