Brief Program Description

What happens when you are a teacher with a class of students whose cultural backgrounds are far different than your own? What happens when there is civil unrest in the community, in the world, and now your classroom is divided? How do you relate, establish trust, and create a safe space that encourages social, emotional, and academic growth for all students? In this workshop, through engaging conversation and interactive collaboration, we will provide essential tools to empower teachers to create a culturally conscious and aware after-school program that nurtures relationships among students, teachers, and the community.
