South Suburban AEYC
South Suburban Association for the Education of Young Children

As part of our effort on behalf of young children in the south suburbs, we offer SSAEYC members the
opportunity to continue their professional development with support in the form of a mini-grant of up to
$250.00.  These grants have been awarded annually for the past nine years. We have supported
members as they attend local and state conferences, attend continuing education classes, seek
accreditation, and bring consultants to their centers.

Donna Furmanek of Orland Park received $250.00 for the reimbursement of an on-site staff in-service.

Lynn Hollender of Palos Park received $50.00 for the reimbursement of a EC conference.

Arrilla Wray of Alsip received $350.00 for the reimbursement of college tuition for an EC course.

You may need help paying for a college course, a speaker for your center, or attending a workshop.
