Parent Ambassadors

Become a Parent Ambassador and make a difference in the lives of children!

Parent Ambassadors learn advocacy, leadership, communications, and engagement skills to become strong voices for young children and families in our state. They advocate and teach others about the importance of high-quality child care and early learning programs that benefit young children and help close the opportunity gap. Ambassadors receive training and support to become effective advocates and leaders. If selected, you will serve a one-year term that begins in March. All travel expenses are subsidized by the Washington State Association of Head Start and ECEAP.

Applications for 2024 Parent Ambassadors are now being accepted. If you are interested in this great opportunity, please submit your application by Jan. 15, 2024. Applications and full details can be found on the Washington State Association of Head Start & ECEAP website linked below.
