Help Send Little Ripples to Present at NAEYC!

Our Little Ripples team has been accepted to present at the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) conference this coming November in Washington D.C.!  NAEYC is the world’s largest organization working on behalf of young children with nearly 80,000 members from more than 300 Affiliates and more than 120 countries, including teachers, administrators, parents, educators, and policy members.  Over 10,000 individuals working in the field of early childhood education attend this annual conference. Little Ripples is honored to be presenting our innovative program during a three hour interactive workshop at this conference.

The NAEYC national conference brings together early childhood educators to explore the latest research and learn from one another.  This is a unique and extremely valuable opportunity for us to share our program and garner support from some of the leading early childhood education experts from around the nation.  During our days in Washington D.C., we hope to create key partnerships with individuals, preschools, and agencies nationwide and recruit more Expert Teacher Advisors (ETA) to join our esteemed team.

As Little Ripples is run on a small operating budget, we are asking for your help in sending our team to Washington D.C.  Our goal of $6500 includes airfare, hotel stay, conference registration, and daily incidentals for four of our Little Ripples team members to attend and present at the conference from November 20 – November 23.  100% of funds raised from this drive will go directly to sending our team to the conference.

Meet the Team:

Gabriel Stauring, Director of i-ACT
Jocelyn Tucker, Part of first ETA duo to train LR teachers in Goz Amer in June 2013
Irma Vazquez, One of the first ETAs to join the team and an LR rock star

Check out Jocelyn, with fellow ETA Melissa, in action:

What your donation will help us cover:
