Join us for a night of celebration as we induct the inaugural class into the Early Education Hall of Heroes. We’ll honor 18 professionals who represent Westchester’s most dedicated and talented child care and after school professionals, and recognize the incredible contributions of the entire industry. Bring your friends for a fun evening of dinner, live entertainment, giveaways, networking and more.
The Business Council of Westchester’s Education Foundation recently hosted Where Business and Child Care Meet, a forum for experts from the Child Care Council’s Board, Advisory Board and staff to have a conversation with business leaders about the need for – and benefits of – increasing access to sustainable child care for working parents. We were especially excited and honored to have Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul in attendance to speak about the importance of child care.. Our thanks to Dr. Marsha Gordon, John Ravitz and Maria Bronzi of the Business Council of Westchester. We look forward to many more productive meetings and conversations.
Juanita Pope, the Child Care Council's Office Manager and Special Events Manager, was chosen to be among a select group of professionals in the nonprofit sector who make up the inaugural class of Nonprofit Westchester's new Emerging Leaders Program. She and 20 other rising stars will meet at a different nonprofit each month of the year to focus on a relevant professional development topic, learn about the host organization, and network. The program, designed to help foster talent among the next generation of nonprofit leaders, launched last week and held its first session at Westhab, Inc.
Juanita shared that she is very excited to participate. "I look forward to getting to know my colleagues and learning more about the many aspects of running a successful organization and what it takes to make a true impact for the populations we serve."
