The OEC Parent Cabinet is Looking for Parents & Caregivers to Join!
The Office of Early Childhood (OEC) is looking for parents and caregivers to become a part of their new OEC Parent Cabinet! The OEC is a state agency that oversees programs and services that help young children and families thrive. They want to make sure all of their policies and programs are family-driven, and since parents are the experts, they can’t do it without you!
When you join the Parent Cabinet, you’ll be able to make your voice heard on important issues, like improving laws and policies related to young children and their families; and helping to make sure the needs of all families are heard.
Help us spread the word by having your local parent leaders apply. Parent Cabinet members receive a stipend for their time and expertise. Applications will be open for 6 weeks closing end of day June 28, 2021.
Learn more by visiting the Parent Cabinet Website page. You can also find flyers to distribute out on the website.
