Parent & Caregiver Support
Our Parent engagement work is centered around the theme of Safety, Sustainability & Solidarity and create safe space for parents to reflect, heal and grow. Through a dynamic and responsive curriculum, we will provide parent/caregiver retreat sessions designed to deepen our understanding of the forces that shape our parenting. We provide opportunities to explore healthy communication and family rituals, self-care and sustainability, and discuss how these are both tools for developing our immunity to social toxins and heal from our individual and collective trauma. We also discuss discipline strategies for building trust, resiliency, responsibility, and respect and explore ways to empower resiliency in our families.
This work is a collaborative effort, made possible by the Oakland Unified School District Office of Parent Engagement, Oakland Educational Fund and the Campaign for Black Male Achievement Health & Healing Strategies.
