jeanette betancourtDr. Jeanette Betancourt is the Senior Vice President for U.S. Social Impact at Sesame Workshop, and she joins #MOTM with Dr. Peter Sacco and Todd Miller tonight at 8p ET to discuss the number of outreach initiatives Sesame Workshop is involved with, as well as their new print character Julia, who is autistic! Jeanetta oversees and manages the delivery of high impact and targeted domestic and international outreach initiatives. She conceptualizes and implements compelling models for the delivery of Outreach initiatives that effect and engage children, families, caregivers, educators, and other providers. Sesame Workshop outreach initiatives involve the development of research-based multiple media resources designed specifically to meet the needs of children and adults in typically underserved communities, domestically and internationally.

She has directed Sesame Workshop Outreach initiatives in the areas of nutrition education (healthy habits), food insecurity, health and safety, school readiness, military family transitions, grief, music, child care, mutual respect and understanding, parenting, and English language learning. In addition, she manages the versioning of these initiatives into multiple languages as well as the formative and summative research that accompanies each project. She works collaboratively with several Sesame Workshop divisions to assure that content, language, and educational strategies are age appropriate as well as meet the needs of diverse ethnic and cultural groups. She manages a large group of consultants that are writers, editors and translators. Dr. Betancourt maintains a comprehensive network of national organizations that are strategic partnerships for the delivery and execution of Sesame Workshop outreach initiatives.
