The purpose of Great Start Parent Coalition (GSPC) is to provide local parents with professional development, training, or workshop opportunities that assist in building public will and support for early childhood investment.

The GSPC represents the views, priorities, concerns and needs of parents within the community. The parent members create the vision, plan of work and agendas for GSPC activities and meetings. A key element of support for the Great Start Collaboratives, they help advance local activities and initiatives by lending support and expertise. Each local GSPC is composed of parent volunteers---members are not paid to participate. The membership and leadership of the local GSPCs strive opportunities that to represent the wide diversity of the parents of young children in their community-- including but not limited to cultural, socio-economic, geographic, and gender.
