Councils play a significant role in Trying Together’s efforts to advocate for high-quality early learning environments. By utilizing their perspectives and, in some cases, professional expertise, Council members help Trying Together approach early learning policy challenges and engage policymakers in thoughtful ways that affect positive change. Use your voice for young children, families, and your community by joining our Council today!


Grandparent Council

The Grandparent Council helps to ensure that all young children receive high-quality care and education. Members meet monthly through virtual Zoom meetings to:

    • learn more about the importance of an early childhood education;
    • receive guidance and support in identifying high-quality early learning environments; and
    • learn how to advocate for the well-being of all children in our communities.
