Too Small To Fail Seeks Caregivers for Family Advisory Council

Too Small to Fail (TSTF), the early childhood education initiative of the Clinton Foundation, is currently accepting applications for parents and caregivers to join its second Family Advisory Council.


TSTF promotes early brain and language development by supporting parents and caregivers with tools to talk, read, and sing with their young children starting at birth.

The goal of the Family Advisory Council is to strengthen the organization’s initiatives, content, and resources to better reflect the voices and needs of parents and caregivers.

Roles & Responsibilities

Chosen council members will be required to:

  • Over a twelve-month period, beginning in November 2023 and concluding in October 2024, participate in six virtual meetings with the full Family Advisory Council. Meetings will run approximately 60 minutes long and will take place every other month.
  • Provide additional input between meetings over phone or email, as needed.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Be located within the United States.
  • Be a primary caregiver of one or more children younger than five.
  • Be available to serve throughout the twelve-month term.
  • Have access to reliable Internet to connect to Zoom meetings and respond to emails.

Each member of the Family Advisory Council will receive a $1,000 honorarium, contingent on the member’s fulfillment of their responsibilities.

A $150 stipend for certain necessary costs, such as childcare or access to the Internet is available.


Application details are available on the TSTF website. Applications are due by Wednesday, September 6, 2023.
