In meeting across generations, we can meet needs across society (Zhang, 2017)

Early Childhood Education 

New Educational Partnerships 

Boomers Leading Change is excited to announce its collaboration with key partners in the Early Childhood Education (ECE) field to help transform the early childhood workforce in Colorado. Joining partners Denver Early Childhood Council, Denver Preschool Program and Mile High Early Learning, and metro Denver early childhood centers, BLC is launching an innovative pilot project to test how skilled older adults can provide flexible support to address challenges confronting the EC Workforce. 

In conjunction with this new program, BLC  will mobilize our unique volunteer force of passionate, talented older adults in the following ways:

In the Classroom: BLC will provide teachers, center directors and programs with consistent, predictable and responsive older adult volunteer practitioners who are culturally competent and well trained,  thereby making it possible for teachers to provide more individualized attention to children who need it..

Leadership Support: Volunteers will join a team working to build the capacity of EC programs through leadership and business supports provided by older adults with backgrounds in such disciplines as  human resources, legal, finance, construction, strategic planning, information technology, business planning/modeling, accounting and more.

Additionally, BLC is working directly with community partners who need your help now. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the early childhood centers serving our children. The centers need volunteers who can assist with immediate needs from prepping workbook packets, delivering food and other non-contact activities
