Men and women meeting at NAEYC Conference in Washington DC

Men in Education (M.E.N.) Network Interest Forum invites men and women to its annual meeting. Take the time to learn and share information on a variety of activities for men, fathers, and others who have an impact on the lives of young children. Learn about what’s happening in the USA, and internationally (particularly Germany and Norway). Find out how to recruit more men to your program, and how to support and retain men you already have. Help set the future agenda for the interest forum, have fun, and make new friends!

Two awards will be given out at the conference.

Vermont Conference Gathering A Success

by Jeffry L. Robbins - Director Darmouth Child Care Program
Thanks for the great opportunity to spread the word at the VAEYC conference that men teach (and do it well) and that MenTeach exists for support and education. VAEYC is certainly a champion for men in education. We had six people at our interest forum meeting and all stayed for a full hour of discussion. Ten people joined us for lunch and there were just shy of 20 in Craig's workshop. Then, what, 350 people walked by our display.
