Are you passionate about supporting young children to reach their full potential? Do you want to cultivate relationships with others who share your career goals from across SJSU’s Lurie College of Education programs? Get involved in either of the two opportunities below to advance these priorities this school year and beyond! These options are open to anyone interested in working with young children – as an educator, therapist, counselor, program director, or any of the other professions committed to working with young children.
Opportunity 1: Early Childhood Connections
Apply to the Early Childhood Connections and join us in exploring and building community with others who have a passion for working with young children under age 5. This opportunity is for current students and Spring 2021 graduates from across SJSU Lurie College of Education programs. First time ECC participants only. You will engage in networking meetings as well as small groups led by student coordinators to build community, learn from alumni and other professionals already in the field, and build your path as you pursue a career involving young children. Participants will have an opportunity to shape the program as it unfolds from September 2021 to April 2022. Supported by Lurie College and the SJSU Early Childhood Institute, this is an opportunity to learn, grow, lead and most importantly, connect! If you have any questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Opportunity 2: Early Childhood Student Alumni Network
Join the Early Childhood Student Alumni Network, a recognized student group that is building a broader interdisciplinary network of current San José State University students interested in working with young children and alumni currently in the field.
Whether you are graduating this spring or continuing on in your journey through SJSU, we hope one or both of these opportunities is right for you!
