UPCOMING EVENTS

TITLE 1 WORKSHOP: WHERE DID YOU HEAR THAT?! NEGOTIATING UNCOMFORTABLE CONVERSATIONS WITH KIDS ABOUT THEIR BODIES AND SEXUALITY - APRIL 17TH AT 6PM

Kids have lots of questions, especially when it comes to bodies and sexuality. Jeremy Hawkins (Chair of the Health Department at Brooklyn Friends School, graduate of Teachers College Columbia University, and Camp Life Director at Beam Camp, NH) teaches Health and Human Sexuality to grades 4-10—and has been answering those very questions for years.  Jeremy will discuss the topics that young people start asking, and share his expertise around how to talk to kids about their bodies, sexuality and growing up in an increasingly complicated world.  Q & A to follow.

This is event is Free.

Childcare and pizza will be provided
