First Things First seeks applicants
Special to the Tribune

First Things First (FTF) is seeking applicants for the First Things First Yavapai Regional Partnership Council.

FTF regional council members are a crucial voice for kids ages birth to five throughout Arizona. In collaboration with their communities, regional councils determine which early education, health and family support programs to fund to help more local children arrive at kindergarten prepared to succeed.

The Yavapai Regional Partnership Council, which meets monthly, makes these decisions for all of Yavapai County and Sedona. Each year, the Council is responsible for allocating more than $3.5 million to programs serving young children in this area.

"If you want to go where the rubber meets the road, you need to be on the First Things First Yavapai Regional Partnership Council, being able to put the money where it makes the difference," says Sara Lienau, a child care provider who currently serves on the Yavapai Regional Partnership Council.

"I have not experienced one person being on the council who has not only enjoyed it, but also felt like they were doing something worthwhile and helping to get a system into place that will benefit our young children," says Anne Babinsky Rawlings, a retired educator who also serves on the Yavapai Regional Partnership Council.

People who reside and/or work in Yavapai County or Sedona and are interested in serving on the First Things First Yavapai Regional Partnership Council can get an application at For more information, call the First Things First Yavapai Regional Office at 928-776-0062.
