Vision and Mission

  • Vision
    All Southeast Early Learning Partners work to support initiatives that nurture vibrant, joyful, and hopeful spaces where all, young and old, thrive from sharing their strengths, talents, and diversity. A connected and informed community is resourceful and values its children by providing all its caretakers with the support the need to raise happy and healthy children.

    The Southeast St. Paul Early Learning Coalition builds intergenerational communication and information bridges in our community to ensure that every family and resident accesses the resources they need and want.

VISTA recruitment
  • SPPS OEL seeks a driven individual with community mobilization skills.

    Position Title: Early Learning Coalition Connection VISTA


    The SPPS Office of Early Learning specifically works to ensure lasting achievement for all early learners. Our Early Learning Coalitions aid in this effort by collaborating with residents and organizations within communities for the benefit of families with young children.


    SPPS OEL is working collaboratively with Mayor Carter’s City of Saint Paul VISTA Program—which brings together organizations serving children from birth to three and their families to build “a Saint Paul that works for all of us”—including our youngest residents


    The ELC Connection VISTA will assist in increasing resident participation and voice in current ELCs, while also supporting sustainability across all ELCs.
