Increasing Quality Child Development Services in San Francisco

The overall goal of the Professional Development Project is to increase quality child development services in San Francisco through the promotion of recruitment, retention and educational advancement in the Early Care and Education Workforce.

The activities include comprehensive career resources, academic advising, information on training opportunities, and a partnership between the Community College and San Francisco State University. The project also serves as a voice for professional development, career resource issues, early childhood workforce compensation, and public policy.
