ONE TRUSTED ADULT:
Building Mentoring and Caring Relationships
Tues, March 29; 7pm-8:15pm PT
Free for member school parents and for educators from member and non-member schools. Registration closes two hours before the start of this event or when maximum registration is reached.
Research shows that just one trusted adult can have a profound effect on a child’s life, influencing a young person toward positive growth, greater engagement in school and community activities, better overall health, and prevention of risky and threatening behaviors. Educator and author Brooklyn Raney will share insights on how child-centered educational cultures reinforce trust and accountability.
