Event Details

UnConference: Our ECE Voice

Now more than ever, it is critical that our ECE Voice is heard!  With co-host Slippery Rock University, this UnConference focuses on the importance of everyday advocacy.  Topics include: leadership advocacy within your environment with families, how to separate real vs. fake news and where to find legitimate information, an overview of the legislative process and how you fit in, how to create relevant and persuasive messaging for effective campaigns, and more.

PAEYC is excited to host this UnConference with our co-host Slippery Rock University. The day also features a keynote speaker and workshop presentations by leading local organizations. The day closes with a round table discussion and reflections on how to continue our work beyond the UnConference.

The workshops are developmentally appropriate practice for educators and caregivers working with children ages birth through age nine.  However, many of the workshop offerings can also apply to students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
