Children's Global Issues Community
The mission of the Children's Global Issues Community is to provide information and dialogue that will inform child advocates related to Children’s Rights, Early Education (Childcare and Family Day Care) in other nations, US education policy related to international practices, and strategies for contacting early childhood educators in other countries. These purposes are related to NAEYC’s goal to increase public understanding of policies and financing that support a system of quality education for all children and their families.

PEACE Educators Interest Forum
The Peace Educators Interest Forum (Peace Educators Allied for Children Everywhere) consists of NAEYC members who want to help young children and their caregivers develop in peace and well-being. Through NAEYC Conferences and Forum communications, we promote peace education by working to develop and use the attitudes, understandings, and methods of nonviolence needed to build peace, caring, justice, and mutual respect within ourselves, others, and in our environments. We also work to remedy the damages that violence has caused in the lives of children. Visit the national PEACE website at http://www.peaceeducators.org/.

Rural Children, Families, and Early Childhood Educators Interest Forum
The purpose of the Rural Children, Families, and Early Childhood Educators Interest Forum is to create a community of individuals serving rural children and families in America that collectively seek to raise awareness of the unique needs of rural children and families. The unique circumstances of rural children and families challenge professionals working in early childhood education to provide high-quality programs for all children. The forum provides a platform for solutions to be offered and discussions conducted that result in improved practices.
