What is a learning party?
A learning party goes beyond traditional training where you watch a presenter. At a learning party, you’ll get a variety of experiences that combine learning and doing. There will be presentations AND lots of opportunities for hands-on activities, group work, individualized learning, and networking.
What will I learn?
The Parent Leadership Learning Party is designed to support you as you take an active role in your child’s education and in schools, early learning programs, local communities, or your local EHDI program. This experience will support your growth and development in four areas: trust and conflict, communication, advocacy, and idea implementation.
You will leave with the knowledge, skills, and resources to:
- be an effective advocate for your child’s education
- become a trusted leader in your school and community
- use new listening and communicating skills to effectively participate in local and state meetings
- use clearly defined processes to develop and implement group projects
What will I take home?
Each participant will receive a free Leadership Kit!
How do I register?
