The role of the NALEO Educational Fund (NALEO) is to be the principal convener of Latino policymakers across all levels of office. The organization educates and builds the skills of its members so that they understand the various issues of education policy and have the knowledge, governance, and leadership skills necessary to champion an education agenda in their respective jurisdictions.
NALEO’s early childhood programming is strong and has steadily expanded beyond early learning to include health and family economic security.
Alliance-Funded Support for State Advocacy
NALEO equips Latino state legislators with the tools needed to become effective champions and advocates for young children and their families. The organization is connecting with the Alliance’s state allies to provide content, knowledge, and governance skills at their Legislative Summit.
NALEO is also taking advantage of rapid response and technical assistance to assist Latino state legislators to support policies and practices that improve the academic, socio- emotional, health, and economic outcomes for young children and their families.
