Register: K-16 Partnerships June Institute – Jun 4

Posted by PHENND on March 26, 2024

Join us at the 2024 PHENND K-16 June Institute on June 4! This year we will focus on the 2Gen approach to education, which the Aspen Institute defines as one which “builds family well-being by intentionally and simultaneously working with children and the adults in their lives together. 2Gen approaches center the whole family to create a legacy of educational success and economic prosperity that passes from one generation to the next.”

Held in the Center for Business & Industry at the Community College of Philadelphia, sessions will feature programs that are currently engaged in this work as well as those which include important components of this approach as they support young people and their caregivers.

Our keynote speaker will be Maria Elizabeth Wilson, Affiliate Program Director of the Family Scholar House in Louisville, Kentucky. Family Scholar House is a residential program for single parents and their children that provides a comprehensive continuum of care designed to support families in meeting educational and career goals. They serve non-residential single parent families as well and have a growing affiliate program.

Continental breakfast will be available beginning at 9:00am and the program will begin at 9:30am. Lunch will also be provided. The day will end by 3:30pm. Sessions and workshops will be updated as they are confirmed. There is no charge to attend the June Institute.

Please feel free to bring information for the community resource tables as well as your questions and stories to share.
