EMPOWER PLUS – Acepting Applications for Cohort #2

Empower PLUS+ launched in Arizona last year.  Is accepting applications for Cohort 2.  This is NOT the same as the Empower program, which most of you are already enrolled in.  

Empower PLUS+ is an intense federally funded one-year project which provides training and technical assistance to child care CENTERS wishing to improve practices in the areas of health, nutrition and physical activity.

 Requirements for Eligibility:

  • Must be a child care CENTER – we cannot accommodate group homes and family child care programs at this time.
  • Center must be in MARICOPA or PIMA counties – we cannot accommodate centers in other counties at this time.
  • Center must serve a minimum of 50 children between the ages of birth to age 5 – you cannot be a ‘before and after school’ program only.
  • Center must be committed to quality and be willing to improve their practices and policies related to health, nutrition and physical activity.
  • Center must be committed to complete the project – 5 trainings (weekdays) between September 2014 through May 2015.
