Are you concerned with violations of students’ rights, underfunding, systemic racism, and harsh disciplinary practices in Delaware public schools? Are you interested in becoming a trained advocate for a safe, equitable, and proficient education for all Delaware students? Become an Education Equity Ambassador!
Our Education in Equity Campaign is excited to launch the Education Equity Ambassador program to recruit, train, and empower Delaware parents and guardians to advocate for our schools and children and enable them with the skills to make changes for the better.
Education Equity Ambassadors (EEAs) complete paid training over the course of six sessions to better understand and navigate avenues for change, and to grow the skills necessary to become community advocates on education equity issues such as budget equity, restorative justice, inclusion, and health and safety and more.
EEAs continue their work by advocating for legislation, policies, and initiatives to create stronger public school systems statewide.
To be eligible for the Education Equity Ambassador program you must be a parent or guardian of a student one of the following schools:
- Harlen Elementary
- Joseph E. Johnson Elementary
- Pulaski Early Education Center
- Shortlidge Academy
- Stubbs Early Education Center
- The Bayard School
- The Bancroft School
- Warner Elementary
- William C. Lewis Dual Language School
We are currently recruiting for our Spring 2024 cohort. All participants must attend the first session on Tuesday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m. at Stubbs Early Education Center, 1100 N Pine Steet, Wilmington, DE 19801. Further training dates to be announced.
