Event description

Description

"Seeds of Hope explores how schools welcome and educate immigrant and refugee families as they start their lives over in America. Follow Nebraska’s newcomer students: the inconceivable trauma and tribulations of their past, the perseverance to succeed in the present, and their hopes for a brighter future through quality education."

Please join us for a NE Loves Public Schools screening and facilitated discussion about the latest film in the NE Loves Public Schools digital library. This film is incredibly relevant to P4K programming as "Nebraska led the nation in resettling the most refugees per capita in 2016. Source: U.S. State Department’s Refugee Processing Center and the U.S. Census Bureau" This film explores how NE schools are challenged to meet the needs of these students but also how they are finding great success in program implementation.

Free parking is provided. Please check in at the Weitz Community Engagement Center parking booth in Lot E.

Lunch will also be provided. Please make your selection below. (You may also bring your own lunch if you prefer.)

Orders will be placed on April 18th. Because of this additional expense, we ask that any cancellations be made 48 hours in advance or consider reimbursing the cost of your meal should you need to cancel after the order has been placed.

The film is 35 minutes long and will start promptly at 12:15pm. Should you need to leave after the film, please feel free to do so, but we hope you will join us for the NE Loves Public Schools facilitated discussion following the viewing.

Please feel free to bring a friend who may be interested in being a mentor with P4K!
