The Early Support for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT) program is seeking parents/caregivers from a variety of backgrounds to participate in the State Interagency Coordinating Council’s (SICC) Parent Institute for Engagement (PIE): Leadership and Lifelong Learning.
PIE is a 12-month training program for parents/caregivers with children who have received early intervention services and primarily for those not working in the early intervention field. One spot is designated for a parent/caregiver who has worked in the early intervention field for less than 18 months.
Parent/Caregivers will learn about:
- Robert’s Rules of Order (a framework commonly used in public meetings)
- The State Interagency Coordinating Council and its role in advising and assisting ESIT
- The early intervention system
- Leadership and advocacy
- Public speaking and presentations
Parent/caregivers will develop skills to be great candidates for school boards, and government bodies. This is a great practice ground for leadership opportunities.
The majority of meetings will take place via an on-line format, with about five two-day in-person meetings (travel and childcare costs will be reimbursed).
Please complete the Survey Monkey (below) by Wednesday, April 18. We will notify selected candidates the week of April 23, 2018.
