ECLI Students Achieving Against the Odds

June 28, 2016 11:33 AM
Hopkins House announced today that 17 students (25%) enrolled in its Early Childhood Learning Institute (ECLI) earned 16 or more college credits, or a quarter of the credits needed to earn an Associates degree in Early Childhood Education, and 50 (73%) students earned professional certificates in the early care and education field.

"These students are beating the odds and making remarkable progress toward achieving their educational goals," said Morris Redd, ECLI Director. "These mothers of young children and first-generation college bound students are knocking down the barriers and steadily moving closer to better career options, higher pay, and less dependence on government aid."
A formal recognition ceremony is planned for Saturday, July 30.

The ECLI, in partnership with Northern Virginia Community College, encourages and supports teens and young adults in their quest to earn professional credentials and college credits in Early Childhood Education, gain permanent employment in local childcare centers, and build career success in the field of Early Childhood and/or Elementary Education.
