2018 Symposium

Family Advocates

This year has been extremely special as Child Care Aware® of America celebrated 30 years of growth and accomplishments. We would be honored to have you help celebrate the closeout of Child Care Aware® of America’s 30th Anniversary.

Child Care Aware of America’s 2018 Symposium will be held from Tuesday, April 17th, to Friday, April 20th in Washington, DC.

The 2018 Symposium will focus on celebrating passion, persistence, and igniting possibilities. The Symposium brings together more than 600 child care experts, child care resource and referral agency leaders and staff, child care providers, researchers, policymakers, parents, students, and others with an interest in child care and early childhood education.

As a part of the 2018 Symposium, Child Care Works, powered by Child Care Aware® of America, is pleased to announce the recruitment of family advocates to join the 2018 Symposium Conference and participate in our annual Day on the Hill. Advocates will also participate in advocacy training, as well as have an opportunity to share their stories with lawmakers and their staff members to fight for high-quality, accessible, and affordable child care for all.


We are no longer accepting applications. Thanks to all of the parent advocates who’ve applied!

All applicants will be notified later this month.
