Child care has suffered tremendously during the COVID-19 pandemic. Never have child care leaders been more critical.
Take your place among Westchester's leaders via Leadership Westchester, a rigorous, 9 month program run by Volunteer NY! that sharpens leadership skills, expands relationships, facilitates a new understanding of your own values, capacities and goals, and deepens your ability to influence others.
For the 6th year, the Council is pleased to fully support the participation of a Westchester early care and education leader in this unique opportunity.
A Council committee will pre-screen all applicants for this scholarship and interview selected candidates. Interviews with the committee will be scheduled for late July/early August. Final selection will be made by Leadership Westchester. The first Leadership Westchester class will be in late October.
