I’m traveling to Cleveland today to participate in the Grow Up Great Advisory Council meeting. The Advisory Council is comprised of respected leaders within the early childhood field and provides strategic guidance to PNC on this project.
Grow Up Great is a bilingual, $350 million initiative that began in 2004 to help prepare children under age five for success in school and life. To date, the program has served 1.5 million children throughout its footprint in 15 states and the District of Columbia.
The agenda for the two-day meeting includes topics ranging from the PNC Grow Up Great-Sesame Workshop Collaboration, Measuring and Communicating the impact of Grow Up Great. I will also be attending the opening of the PNC Fairfax Connection Program and am looking forward to sharing with you what I learn next week.
Hats off to PNC for its continued commitment to early childhood education!
