Parent Ambassadors are recruited to participate in a yearlong leadership and advocacy training program. Parents acquire skills
in communicating and presenting their experiences to inform legislators and decision makers. Since 2009, Parent Ambassadors have provided
testimony and advocated to improve the child-care subsidy
system, expand early learning opportunities for children in the child welfare
system, increase ECEAP services to all eligible children, and maintain funding for child-care assistance and ECEAP.
150 hours of training, mentoring, and coaching received
by Parent Ambassadors in a yearlong program.
Each year Parent Ambassadors typically give testimony at 6
100 presentations on advocacy and early learning issues made by
