Workforce Coordinators

Our team supports early childhood professionals in reaching their goals by helping them get connected to the supports they need most to achieve their dreams. We have regionally-based Workforce Coordinators working in your communities to support collaboration and connection to local and statewide opportunities.

Indiana Accreditation Project

What does this look like?

  • A Workforce Coordinator might meet with a program leader to discuss their program’s organizational climate and strategies to recruit new employees and retain and recognize their current team of professionals.
  • A Workforce Coordinator might work one-on-one with an individual who is interested in advancing their early childhood career. Together, they can identify the key supports available in their community, including partnering with a peer mentor or connecting with professional development opportunities.
  • A Workforce Coordinator will stay connected with community trends to identify opportunities to increase and strengthen the workforce through initiatives that will have the greatest impact on their specific region.
  • The Workforce Systems team will also continue to provide supports for national accreditation, including financial scholarships, so that high quality programs can be celebrated and recognized on a local, statewide, and national level.

Our team is here to support all who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children. We’re looking forward to working with you!
