Maine Early Learning Investment Group (MELIG)
The Maine Early Learning Investment Group, or MELIG, is a growing group of business leaders who understand that the success of Maine’s economy depends on educated, skilled and innovative workers. These leaders are concerned with student achievement and the quality of Maine’s future workforce and are actively working to improve both. To this end, they have launched an initiative to raise and invest funds in the healthy development of Maine’s youngest children and their families.

Maine’s Technical Assistance Competencies
In late June 2017, nearly 70 technical assistance (TA) professionals from a wide range of disciplines who support Maine’s diverse early childhood workforce gathered in Hallowell, ME, for the rollout of the Technical Assistance Competencies for Maine’s Early Childhood Workforce.

Materials from this rollout are provided at no cost and are intended for use by all TA professionals working within the early care and education field in Maine.
