We’re so very excited to announce that BBC will be offering a scholarship to ONE dedicated, active BBC mama who is interested in a career in lactation management to attend the CLC Training in Lubbock, TX the week of February 8-12, 2016!
The scholarship recipient will receive fully-paid tuition ($625) to attend the workshop but will be responsible for her own travel expenses and exam fee ($120).

Her volunteer commitment will include attendance at monthly meetings and availability on Tuesday mornings for BBC’s New Program, Breastfeeding Cafe’, each week for the contracted 2 year period. She will also be required to be available to help administrate BBC’s Facebook community. She will have no restrictions on how she uses her certification and will be able to work in the lactation field using her certification so long as she is still able to maintain her commitments to BBC for the 2 year contracted period.
