Early Learning Investment Committee (ELIC)

The Early Learning Investment Committee of the Susquehanna River Valley (ELIC)

Chair: Norman Rich

The ELIC is a regional group of business and community leaders in partnership with United Way, which advocate for and take action to improve and increase access to quality early childhood education and experiences for all children. They understand that investing in early childhood education is critical for a strong workforce and regional economy.

The ELIC's Nice Never Hurts initiative prevents bullying in later years by teaching a social emotional curriculum implemented to preschool age children at area childcare preschool programs. The ELIC welcomes sponsors to support curriculum and training costs to participating programs in Northumberland, Snyder and Union Counties.
