"Coloring & Career Exploration" is a virtual workshop to help Black and Brown children discuss racial identity and explore career paths.

About this event

Coloring & Career Exploration is a virtual workshop to help children of color (ages 5-10) discuss racial identity and explore career paths. Research shows that racial socialization and positive racial identity promotes increased self-esteem and reduces risk of mental health difficulties.

This virtual 60-minute workshop co-hosted by Therapy for Black Kids and The Career Hive will provide a space for Black and Brown kids to explore their identity and career options.

Kids are welcomed to dress up in costumes related to their career interest.
