Come Back to School with Regeneración!

How do we undo structural racism in our childcare settings?

What do we do to keep kids safe while respecting their inner value and autonomy?

Regeneración Childcare invites you to learn how to create authentic, liberatory spaces with children by acquiring tools for active listening and strengthening our analysis of structural racism in childcare settings. We are proud to partner with Jaime-Jin Lewis, Racial Justice Trainer and Educator, and Pippi Kessler of Rowe Young People’s Camp to offer this valuable skills-building opportunity!

Back to School: Training for Transformation
When: Sunday, Nov 2, 2014 - 9:30am to 5:00pm
Where: ALP Office - 147 W 24th St, 3rd Floor, NY NY 10011

Here is a little bit more detail about the topics that will be covered in this training:

Active Listening with Kids
As we commit to making systemic and community level change, it can still be challenging to incorporate our principles into our everyday lives. Listening is one of the most powerful strategies available to adults to communicate to young people that they are both visible and valuable to us. In this workshop, you’ll learn to put listening techniques to work, both to improve your effectiveness with young people and to bring about behavioral change. In addition to teaching active listening strategies that communicate respect, we will also talk specifically about how systemic power can be coded into casual speech and interaction.

Transforming How We Speak About Race As Caregivers
As adults, we are challenged to explain structural concepts to children in ways that feel relevant and comprehensible. This session will help us build a framework for understanding experiences of racism in childcare settings and workshop strategies for intervening in real world scenarios, with the purpose of engaging adults and children in a collective process of liberation.

Attendance at this workshop is open to caregivers, parents, and anyone who wants to gain these important skills for working with children. Breakfast and lunch will be provided as a part of this day-long training. 

There is a $15-35 sliding scale fee to attend - no one will be turned away for lack of funds. The per person cost of the workshop is $25; we encourage you to give at the level that feels best for you to enable your own and others’ participation.

Please note that space is limited, and registration is required!
