WORKSHOPS, WEBINARS AND EVENTS

UPCOMING EVENTS

E-LEARNING WEBINARS (FREE)

Spring Sessions: Thursdays (April 25, May 9 & May 23), 7:00 to 7:30 pm

Online webinars via Zoom

The goal of these free webinars is to provide you and your family with another channel to gain knowledge, resources and tips that will better support everyone’s pathway to success in education and wellness. These webinars also encourage families to take a step forward together towards embracing 21st Century Learning.  Our greatest hope is that these webinars will empower and equip your family with relevant and up-to-date information and tools so you can have important discussions at home, set goals, make plans and ultimately achieve them together with everyone’s involvement.  

We use Zoom as our meeting platform. Participants can join through any mobile device, phone, laptop or computer using a meeting link provided before the webinar. If you don’t have a laptop or computer at home, please check out our Creating Tech Savvy Families Program.  Find out if you qualify and how to purchase an affordable laptop and/or computer. Our mission is to make learning equitable and accessible!
