Alliance for Early Success Update

The Alliance for Early Success grant has allowed Early Learner to provide trainings, complete a strategic plan and create meaningful connections and creations for advocates and stakeholders alike. One benefit of being an alliance partner is our connection to fantastic national allies. One of those allies is the Council for Strong America.

ReadyNation, which is under the umbrella of Council for Strong America, leverages the experience, influence, and expertise of approximately 3,000 business executives to promote public policies and programs that build a stronger workforce and economy. Since 2006, ReadyNation members have made a bottom-line case for effective, bipartisan investments in children as the future workforce that will drive success in the global marketplace.

Our main point of Contact, Nancy Fishman, will be joining us for our October Summit to speak on behalf of ReadyNation and their work in South Dakota.
