Enjoy a FREE enrichment opportunity hosted by Building Bright Futures and the North Carolina Business Committee for Education (NCBCE). Representatives from Washington D.C.-based Early Childhood Workforce Connector (ECWC), a U.S. Department of Labor-funded industry intermediary, will discuss the role apprenticeships have on promoting professionalism in early childhood education and how apprenticeships serve as an onramp for a variety of career pathways in the field. Break-out sessions for providers, mentors, and apprentices will reinforce the importance of advocacy and professionalism to elevate the ECE workforce and boost individual careers.

The Early Childhood Workforce Connector (ECWC) is a U.S. Department of Labor-funded industry intermediary working to increase and expand ECE registered apprenticeships. ECWC promotes developing, launching, and expanding registered apprenticeship programs to support and sustain a diverse, inclusive, well-qualified, and well-compensated ECE workforce. A strong, inclusive, and robust early childhood ecosystem contributes to the health and well-being of young children and their families, as well as the broader economy.
