Read about the Call featured in the Boston Opportunity Agenda brief What a Pandemic Reveals

The 9:30 Call is a check-in for early education and care community. The call runs daily, Monday–Thursday from 9:30–10:00 AM. We all jump on right at 9:30—so no need to jump on early. All are welcome to attend. We have individuals from Early Education and Care, Community-based Organizations, Nonprofits, Research, Philanthropy, Business, Higher Education, State and Local Government, K-12, Health, Human Services, Economic Development, and Law.

We often welcome guest speakers to share updates. This call is on Zoom and we use the same link every day. If we do record, we’ll be sure to give you a heads up.

The SFC team sends out a summary follow-up email every day. If you missed the call live, you can always catch-up with the follow-up email.

It has been a great opportunity to get everyone on the same page, share updates, and develop action steps. The calls have provided the space for us all to address and discuss many challenges facing the field today and share our collective successes. This supportive community has accomplished a lot since March of 2020.
