What’s New and Noteworthy at ZERO TO THREE
From the Desk of ZERO TO THREE’s Executive Director, Matthew Melmed
Dear ZERO TO THREE Members,
I would like to share with you some highlights of what we have recently been working on at ZERO TO THREE:
We have teamed up with YouTube star La Guardia Cross to create “Daddy Matters,” a 4-part web series that explores why dads matter and what matters to dads. Each week, we will cover new topics and invite dads to join this important conversation. La Guardia is the creator of New Father Chronicles, which captures life with his 2 young daughters, and which has drawn millions of engaged viewers and sparks lively conversations on his social media channels. He was named to Ebony’s Power 100 list and is a leading national voice for dads. The series officially launched on June 2. Topics covered, all drawn from our Tuning In research, will include:
- Becoming a father: expectations, fears, making mistakes and learning from them.
- The critical role fathers play in their young children’s development, and how they are doing things differently from their own fathers.
- The importance of the first 3 years and the influence of parents’ everyday interactions with their children.
- Asking for help and continuous learning are strengths.
We continue our celebration of ZERO TO THREE’s 40th Anniversary! Beginning on May 10 and concluding just after Father’s Day, we are making great strides in increasing awareness about our mission. Check out the 40 days of fun facts and introductions to the people and programs that make ZERO TO THREE a leader in its field.
ZERO TO THREE is in the news! Here is a small sampling of some noteworthy recent media coverage of ZERO TO THREE.
