Jobs/Roles in the ECE Community: National/Federal Level

Mission Statement: NAEYC promotes high-quality early learning for all children, birth through age 8, by connecting practice, policy, and research. We advance a diverse, dynamic early childhood profession and support all who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children.

NAEYC has always been a front-runner in equality and justice for children. The Anti-Bias Education model was birthed with the help of NAEYC and Louise Derman-Sparks as its front running advocate. Walden University introduced me to the Anti-Bias movement and has driven that passion in me to continue the work with professionals in the field within my own state. NAEYC will be a very helpful resource in accomplishing this.
NAEYC has internships but they also post job openings for other organizations on their page, this is the link that will get you to those positions:

Mission Statement: PBS is a membership organization that, with its member stations, serves the American public with programming and services of the highest quality, using media to educate, inspire, entertain and express the diversity of perspectives.

I cannot, for the life of me, understand why I did not think of PBS Kids. I just watched 60 minutes a few Sunday’s ago where they talked about how Sesame Street will have their first Autistic character and also their first character who has an incarcerated parent.  PBS has always been a great resource for inclusion and diversity. The website has a lot of job openings; They currently have a paying internship for PBS Education Event they are looking for a Graduate student that is pursuing a degree in Education, Communication or Media Development. The link for this page is:

NAME's anti-discrimination statement:
The National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) is committed to an anti-discrimination policy in all of its programs and services. NAME is consciously and proactively inclusive of all areas of diversity including, but not limited to race, ethnicity, color, national origin, sovereign tribal Nations status,  ancestry, gender identity and expression, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, social class, socioeconomic status, marital status, language, disability, or immigration status.

This organization was one I came across while researching other organizations. They are an association that I could see myself being a part of to utilize the resources and networking to help with the work I would do in the early childhood field.  The jobs that they had listed were more on the higher education level and are very interesting positions to be held.  If anyone is looking for positions that work in diversity this place has some very good positions.
