Event description

Description

Join the Philadelphia Education Fund for a panel and open discussion on trauma awareness along the secondary and postsecondary continuum. This is an informative forum for anyone interested in engaging with educators from high school through college level instruction that have found methods and practices to make education accessible for their students that struggle with navigating learning as a result of past traumatic experiences. This forum will focus on populations of students most at risk. If planning to attend, please register, space is limited.

Panelists include;

Currently Ericka is working in the Philadelphia Postsecondary Success Program as well as Philly Goes 2 College-both programs focus on college and career access and readiness for high school students as well as Philadelphians of all ages and backgrounds.
