Three National organizations that instrests me are: Pew Charitable Trusts, National Black Child Development Institute, and the International Child Resource Institute.
Pew Charitable Trusts ( http://www.pewstates.org/projects/328067/the-latest/service?p=3 ) is of interest because of their work and research on PreK Now. They are advocating for public educational reform by changing from K-12 to PreK- 12. They have open positions in the Washington DC and Philadelphia areas. I would like to work as an early childhood educational consultant on promoting Universal PreK, if the at position ever exists.
The International Child Resource Institute ( http://www.icrichild.org/our-vision/ ) is of interest since they focus on early childhood women and children. This organization has projects around the world. I would like to volunteer in Zimbabwe. I am interested in helping young women who have endured sexual assault or abuse, and young women who are HIV-positive.
The National Black Child Development Institute’s ( http://www.nbcdi.org/who-we-are/who-we-are ) mission is to improve and advance the quality of life for Black children and their families through education and advocacy. It has been in existence since 1970 and provides resources in areas such as Health and Wellness; Early Childhood Development and Education; Elementary and Secondary Education; Literacy; Child Welfare; and Family Engagement. I would like to be on their research team to provide support in these areas.
