Serve on a Local HIPPY Advisory Council

Each local HIPPY program has a group of stakeholders and supporters that serve as a HIPPY Advisory Council. The members of the HIPPY Advisory Council support, inform and promote HIPPY in the local community. We are seeking advisors from a variety of backgrounds (education, social services, community based, churches, corporate / business, government) to serve on each of our local HIPPY Advisory Councils (see list of communities and expansion sites).

The responsibilities of the HIPPY Advisory council are to:

  • Support and advise the HIPPY coordinator

  • Advocate for HIPPY with local, state and national decision-makers including legislators, funders and stakeholders

  • Further the program’s public image through public relations, marketing, media and other efforts


  • Assess the program’s performance and provide input for improvement


  • Look for possible volunteers and donations that can benefit the program

Meetings are held approximately 4 times per year, and last 2 hours, in a public meeting space in the local community. If you are interested in supporting a local HIPPY program in an advisory capacity, please contact us!

Other volunteer opportunities include:
  • Hosting an event to support HIPPY in your community

  • Present at a parent meeting or training for home visitors

  • Contacting your local decision-makers about the benefits of school readiness

Contact your community leader and get involved today!
