Your Membership with AEYC
The Southeast Alaska Chapter
AEYC has been providing leadership in early childhood education for over twenty years in Southeast Alaska. Our membership and Board of Directors consist of parents, teachers, child care providers, school age staff, social service professionals, and anyone who recognizes the importance of the early years.
The membership is actively engaged in developing and maintaining the quality of care and education for young children. In addition to advocacy activities, regional conferences, and events, the Southeast affiliate has successfully applied for and administered a number of grants, including the Child Care Food Program, Resource and Referral service, merit awards, and many projects designed to provide support and resources to families and programs caring for young children.
Becoming a member of AEYC is an extraordinary way you can join in the movement to improve the lives of young children, and strengthen support to families, teachers and caregivers. Being a member also provides you with many wonderful benefits.
