On Thursday January 31st at the Northern Trust Bank Bldg on Beachland Blvd., the Kindergarten Readiness Collaborative presents Teens & Tykes Director Jeffrey Shearer with a Lunch & Learn, “Learning From our Own Histories” from 11:30am to 1:30pm.
He will create an interactive session where participants will reflect on their own personal biases and determine how these can be an impediment to our work with the communities/families we serve.
“This session is a continuation of our previous session facilitated by Dr. Sharon Hayes from Keiser University. She presented a historical overview of the context that surrounds low-income families particularly black and hispanic populations. Through this lens participants were able to get a better understanding of the historical context that shaped these communities and understand their hesitation and distrust in receiving services from local agencies.” says Dr. Nivea Torres of KRC!
Lunch is provided.
