Executive Director, Flint Early Childhood Partnership, Flint, MI

The Flint Early Childhood Partnership is seeking an outstanding Executive Director committed to leading the Partnership in its dual purpose of providing excellent early childhood education and care to children age birth through five and their families, and serving as a catalyst for change in early childhood services in Flint and the State of Michigan.

As a result of the Flint Water Crisis, residents in Flint, including approximately 10,000 children from birth to age 6, may have been exposed to lead through their drinking water. One of the most effective strategies to mitigate the damaging effects of lead exposure in children is participation in high-quality early childhood education (ECE) opportunities.

The Flint Early Childhood Partnership was formed between Flint Community Schools, University of Michigan-Flint, Genesee Intermediate School District, the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation to look at new and collaborative ways of expanding ECE in Flint. The Michigan Department of Education was also critical in this partnership, exploring and approving innovative funding mechanisms.
