The Lane Early Learning Alliance’s (ELA) Parent/Caregiver Advisory Council (PAC) is seeking parents and caregivers of children under the age of 8 to inform key program and policy decisions by the ELA that will affect young children and families in Lane County.

We genuinely want to learn from parents and caregivers about their experiences, their hopes for how our community can do better, and their ideas on how to make that happen. At each meeting we bring topics for parents/caregivers to discuss and pursue actions to improve our early learning system.

Participating families receive a $40 gift card after each meeting as a thank you for their time. The Parent/Caregiver Advisory Council meets 8 times each year (online currently, and in-person in the future). Spanish interpretation is provided during the council meetings.

Our next meeting will be on February 10, 2022 from 6:00-7:30pm, through a virtual meeting platform (Zoom).

Please fill out the interest form below, if you are interested in joining the PAC.  One of our team members will contact you with further information.

Thank you!
