April 21, 2012 Parents' Conference at Montgomery College (MC), Germantown, MD
8:30 am – 5:00 pm
Information will come on how to register in advance
Addressing Bullying, Harassment, Discrimination, and Intimidation in our Schools and Community. Come learn effective tools to teach your children to promote their stronger sense of self, values, advocacy, family and community strength, and cohesiveness. This will be informative and very interactive, as we will have smaller break out sessions during lunch.
This conference will be the first of many in our community to encourage open dialogue and family support on this important topic. At our first conference we will have 4-5 speakers who will give parents their “Strength Kit” of effective tools we will practice and they’ll take away to help their families have hope and to encourage dialogue within the family an community. We will have parents bring their children for future family education and sessions.
