On September 6, 2011, Generation Justice youth producers and staff attended and covered the Albuquerque stop of the Invest in Us interactive exhibition. In this interview, youth producer Kamri Lucero talks with Caritha Roybal and Maxine Ward from Rhema, Inc. and the Bright Minds Toddler Academy in Albuquerque about the importance of investing in early childhood development.
Invest In US, a project of the First Five Years Fund, is a multimedia, interactive exhibit that makes the case for investing in early childhood education. The Invest In US exhibit showcases the importance of early brain development, demonstrates how quality early childhood education shapes cognitive and character skills that drive success in school and throughout life, and explains how high rates of return result from a relatively small investment in quality early learning experiences.
