Extractions: Child Care Aware is a non-profit initiative committed to helping parents find the best information on locating quality child care and child care resources in their community. We do this by raising visibility for local child care resource and referral agencies nationwide and by connecting parents with the local agencies best equipped to serve their needs. The Child Care Bureau is dedicated to enhancing the quality, affordability, and availability of child care for all families. The Child Care Bureau administers federal funds to states, territories, and tribes to assist low-income families in accessing quality child care for children when the parents work or participate in education or training.
Extractions: Williamston, Michigan It may be a small community, but Williamston, Michigan is filled with talented, skilled people with a myriad of areas of expertise! Our middle and high schools faced an interesting challenge: how could we tap into the tremendous untapped resource our schools' parents had to offer? The idea we came up with: a Parent Resource Directory. We made an important distinction right off the batthis would not be simply a volunteer program enlisting help for a variety of generic volunteer activities. Instead, we would create a "talent pool"a gathering of information allowing us to match the schools' needs with parents' unique skills and areas of interest. Our goal was simple: to more effectively recognize and utilize the talents, skills, and expertise of as many parents as possible. How could we begin to do so? We presented the worksheet at the fall Open House, showing it to parents gathered in an audience, expressing our appreciation for their talents and abilities, and stressing that the worksheet would simply allow us to set up a database for future opportunities. The principal then asked parents to fill out the worksheet right then and turn it in. At our high school, we gained 230 worksheets on two occasions (Orientation and Open House). At our middle school, we gained 125 worksheets at Open House. We plan to present it again this spring at our incoming sixth grade parent orientation.

"I didn't know what I would be doing, but I knew it would help me," said Hitchel, who graduated last month from Clear Lake High School. By then, the 18-year-old knew how to draw a blueprint, fix a baseball-size hole in a wall, outfit a room with electrical wires and recite the names and functions of more than 100 hand tools and household fixtures. As business owners request more experience from their entry-level employees, the nation's high schools are beginning to train not just educate students such as Hitchel.
