for Educators

FRIENDS FIRST provides workshops for educators and school staff by bringing in nationally-renowned speakers who guide them in content related to increasing youth engagement in school and who give practical tips on strategies for success. Previous events include four “Engaging Boys of Color,” workshops in three school districts facilitated by Dr. LaMarr Shields of the Cambio Group. Educators who attended came away having had meaningful dialogue with other educators and with tools to move forward.
