Tribal Sponsorships

 

Tribal Connections offers a rare opportunity to reach 200 attendees promoting the importance of early childhood in tribal communities.

This event brings together program staff, managers and policymakers from tribes, tribal and non-tribal organizations to learn about important topics impacting young children and families in tribal communities throughout Arizona.

Participants become both student and teacher, as they are invited to answer questions and share experiences or perspectives in working with children and families living on tribal lands. Attendees learn, network and share ideas on how to better support young children and families.

93% of Tribal Connections attendees rated it good to excellent.

“Very good, excellent addition to the conference.”

“Wonderful, meaningful and thoughtful event.”

“Excellent. Enjoyed hearing perspectives on intersection of early childhood best practices and culture.”
