ECPC and DEC Early Childhood Leadership Initiative

June 26, 2018

The Early Childhood Personnel Center (ECPC) in partnership with the Division for Early Childhood (DEC) invites you to be a part of the 2018-19 Early Childhood Leadership Initiative Cohort. The goal of the Early Childhood Leadership Initiative is to provide leadership training to emerging and existing leaders. The ultimate goal is that these leaders from institutes of higher education, doctoral students, and professional development providers will serve on local, national, and federal committees and councils and/or provide leadership through teaching/provision of professional development. This includes potentially serving as leaders within the professional associations. 

It is our goal to develop a series of leadership cohorts that will eventually provide mentorship and support to one another as well as mentorship and support to others in the field at the local, state, and federal levels.


The commitment to this project is a one-year commitment. Funding is available to cover costs as needed.


A sampling of the activities planned in 2018-19 for this initiative include:

  • Emerging Leaders’ Summit – Cohort 1 – Part 1 – Pre-conference, October 23, 2018 at DEC Conference – Orlando, Florida

  • Student Leadership Webinar Series and Community of Practice – To Be Announced
