As part of its strategic objectives around community and partner engagement, Early Edge California has created an Advisory Group Leadership Council of lead participants from the Early Learning Educator, Parent, and Family, Friend and Neighbor (FFN) Advisory Groups, providing opportunities for deeper collaboration and impact. Leadership Council Ambassadors will represent their respective advisory group, serving as a liaison between advisory group members and Early Edge.
Please join us in congratulating our new Early Edge Leadership Council Ambassadors!

The Leadership Council convened its first-ever meeting earlier this week, and had an opportunity to officially meet their fellow Ambassadors, review and discuss the group’s responsibilities, norms, and community guidelines, and hear timely policy updates from Early Edge. The group will continue to meet regularly in the coming months, and will be instrumental in planning for future advisory group meetings and informing Early Edge’s overall advocacy priorities for the year.
Early Edge looks forward to continuing to strengthen and grow its model for connecting policy and practice through key efforts like the Advisory Group Leadership Council, recognizing and highlighting the expertise and commitment to quality Early Learning within our community.
