The Team

The BUILD Initiative is a team of early childhood professionals who are committed to building and sustaining high-quality, comprehensive, early childhood systems that are equitable for marginalized children and families, many of whom have faced discrimination based on race, ethnicity, language, or immigration status.

We have decades of experience with state and local early childhood systems, education reform, health, human services, political campaigns, communications, and messaging. Each team member brings a deep understanding of how to engage disparate constituencies and forge common ground to advance a comprehensive policy agenda.

Minnesota Early Chilldhood Fellowship

The BUILD Initiative has been given the opportunity to host three 10-month fellowships, with each fellow placed within a state project team supporting specific aspects of the implementation of Minnesota’s Preschool Development Grant B-5.
