Collective Action: Together We Rise
The number of school-aged children experiencing poverty and homelessness is significantly high and continuing to rise. The second annual P.H.C. will provide culturally-responsive strategies for educators to effectively reach students in poverty.
In addition to illuminating the complexity of poverty and homelessness, this conference will provide educators with ideas to build and sustain equitable learning environments to improve students' academic success and social-emotional wellbeing.
The following topics will be addressed at the conference:
- Poverty Awareness
- Systems of Inequity
- Working with Families
- Nutrition & Health Implications
- Art Integration & Resiliency
- Responsive Strategies
- Housing Instability Implications
- English Language Learners
Together, we can build more inclusive schools and communities! Together, we can make a positive impact in the lives of children and youth!
