Parent Ambassador Program

You are your child’s best advocate. You’re invited to join the LAUP Parent Ambassador Program to make a difference in your child’s world, your community, and beyond.

Through hands-on workshops and trainings, more than 3,000 parents have learned how to draft persuasive letters and petitions, hold meetings with elected officials, use social media to convey advocacy messages, and organize community members, in order to advance and enhance the early learning opportunities for our children.

Joined by our Public Affairs staff, every year LAUP Parent Ambassadors lead the charge to the state and federal capitols to meet with legislative offices and share the powerful journey and impact early learning has had on the lives of their child(ren) and family unit.


If you would like to learn more and join the program, please contact Amir Johnson, Public Affairs Specialist at

I was glad to have the opportunity to support a program that has been so beneficial for my kids and family. We met with staff members of several Congress members and Senators who, across the board, were courteous and interested to hear from us.
