Our Mission: The Columbia AEYC Student Chapter participates in and plans events to raise funds and awareness for young children and education. In collaboration with AEYC, students are provided a forum to explore professional development and advocacy for children. History: The Columbia AEYC Student Chapter began as a small idea-- the students and faculty of the Early Childhood Education department wanted an organization that would not only allow the students the opportunity to receive recognition on campus but serve as a forum for discussing issues unique to pre-service teachers and others interested in education. Interested remained, but without leadership or direction no organization was ever formed. Then, in spring of this year, we were given the opportunity to form a student chapter of The National Association for the Education of Young Children. With the support and guidance of the faculty of the Early Childhood Education department we became officially recognized as a student organization by the Office of Student Engagement.

Now, we’re HERE talking to YOU. You can shape the future of Columbia AEYC.
