EL Advocacy Institute
November 9-12, 2024
Building a New Generation of EL Leadership in California

Are you a passionate PreK-12 or college educator or supporter of quality education for English learner students? Are you looking to learn new skills to advocate for the best education for all multilingual learners? Are you inspired to learn about the legacy of EL advocacy in California and connect with other like-minded professionals in the field? Then ELLLI was made for you!

Californians Together invites you to apply to be part of this extraordinary, four-day professional development institute. Applications will be competitive, as we have the capacity for a select number of participants for this fully-funded event (materials, meals, lodging, and transportation included).

The institute will be based on design and materials developed for the English Learner Leadership and Legacy Initiative (ELLLI). ELLLI aims to equip a new generation of EL education leaders with a historical perspective and practical skills to further advocacy and action work at the local, regional, and state levels on behalf of multilingual learners and their families. The institute features some of the state’s top EL authorities and leaders in the movement toward educational access and equity for English learners in California.

Deadline to apply is June 30, 2024.
