Strong Start for Children is a community outreach campaign aimed at mobilizing parents, educators, community, and business leaders in making early childhood education a priority in the State of Nevada. We are looking for parents like YOU who believe in the values of high quality early childhood education for ALL children and want to help make a difference in Nevada.

By becoming a Strong Start Ambassador, you will be given the skills and tools to speak up for early childhood education and help make a change in Nevada. Strong Start Ambassadors will learn how to share your story, how to create a bill, how to testify in front of the legislature, how to use social media for social good, and many more skills for creating real change.  

As a Strong Start Ambassador, you will be asked to commit to attend monthly advocacy meeting and trainings. You can attend these meeting in-person or by video-conference. Please let us know if you have any issues that would prevent you from coming to the monthly meeting (i.e. no internet for video-conference or lack of transportation). We do not want these things to keep you from using your voice to create change and we will work with you to find solutions.
