Are you passionate about the field of early learning? Are you eager to be a part of building a world-class early learning system? Do you enjoy facilitating connections and promoting collaboration?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, Whidbey Community Foundation and the Partners for Young Children (PYC) Steering Committee are interested in learning more about your qualifications and experience. We are currently looking for a dynamic and energetic person to work as the PYC Coordinator.

Work schedule can be somewhat flexible but the current estimate is 20 hours per week for the first 12 months. This person will be in the forefront of building a world-class early learning system in Island County and will have the excitement of working with community-based organizations, school districts, early learning professionals, county peers, and state agencies. The Coordinator will be called upon to help continuously improve the way PYC collaborates with its partners locally, regionally, and at the state level.

Island County is progressive in its support of early learning. We have a long history of united, creative, and systems-building initiatives that enhance children (prenatal – age 8) and families getting the support they need in order to be ready for school and life. Over the past 15 years, partners from across the county and a variety of organizations have come together to address emergent needs, build connections within and across systems, and advocate for our youngest learners and their families. This coalition of early childhood partners sees the financial and society benefit of strengthening families and supporting developing children early. Through PYC, Island County organizations and individuals come together to achieve the vision that all children thrive in nurturing relationships and healthy families. Together, partners are cultivating community action to strengthen Island County families.
