We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive experience for all early childhood educators. We are committed to building a network that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We believe the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.
WHY JOIN THE POWER TO THE PROFESSION NETWORK?
Joining the Network will be a rewarding experience for anyone inspired by our mission to “empower all who care for, educate and advocate on behalf of young children.”
You’ll have the opportunity to:
Connect online and in-person with like-minded passionate early childhood educators.
Develop your leadership and advocacy skills.
Find strategies, support and solutions to your daily challenges!
Note: P2P have been postponed. During this crisis, we encourage you to join our weekly “Courageous Conversations” Zoom calls on Wednesdays at 1:00 PM.
Your voice helps to give POWER to the Profession! Join the national movement to ensure early childhood educators at all levels of the profession are valued, respected, and well-compensated!
For us, it begins with listening – to your perspectives, your thoughts and your opinions. That’s why Ohio AEYC is launching the Power to the Profession Network!
Together, WE can build a stronger and more unified voice to advance our profession!
