B4 Co Chair EOI

Become a B4 Co Chair and be part of the change Tasmania’s children need in the early years.

The B4 Early Years Coalition (B4) is a Tasmanian Government initiative to ensure every child is valued in the early years and has the best possible start in life. B4 is a whole of community collaborative approach driving social change in the early years. The early years, being pregnancy to 4 years, especially their first 1000 days is a critical period of development that affects children’s wellbeing and development now and into the future.

Not all of Tasmania’s children are getting a great start. If our children are not thriving Tasmania will not thrive. We all need to work together and support all children in their early years get what they need, when they need it, to thrive and grow.

To support this important work B4 is looking for two new B4 Co Chairs to provide strategic leadership and drive the work of B4 forward. If you are passionate about the early years have skills, experience and knowledge that you believe would benefit B4 and its work apply here.

B4 Co Chair positions are voluntary and unpaid positions. For more information about B4 and the role of a B4 Co Chair see the B4 Co Chair Guidelines.
