The goal of Community Now is simple: for Inland Empire educators to take the lead in building long-term infrastructure and support of foster and at-risk youth in their schools. The objectives we’ve set can be accomplished:
Objective 1: To provide a safe and nurturing learning environment for the professional development teacher training.
Objective 2: To provide professional development teacher training on how best to support African-American / Black foster youth in our schools through a trauma-informed lens.
Objective 3: To provide a fresh unbiased perspective on how to best advocate for the youth who look to educators for guidance.
