The Avanza Program

$11,336

The Avanza Program for professional advancement of Spanish-speaking early childhood educators helped 9 educators to complete course planning, enroll in college courses in early childhood education, obtain financial aid, access counseling support and support one another in furthering their professional development. These women are poised to become leaders who help address the lack of Spanish-speaking early childhood educators who are employed at the teacher level or beyond (rather than the assistant level).
