Expanding Student Success: The State of Expanded Learning in California

It's been another amazing year in Expanded Learning! Come to hear the highlights and Michael's plan for the upcoming year to realize the vision that Expanded Learning programs are paramount to a good education for California's students. We will review updates on last year of strategic implementation; Strategic Plan 2.0; Strategic plan 2.0 - Action Plan for 2019 (what's been done, what's left to do); and State Policy Issues. Join Michael for an interactive discussion with time for Q&A.

Promoting Safety, Inclusion, and Well-Being for LGBTQ+ Youth
Dr. Vincent Pompei, Director, Youth Well-Being Project, Human Rights Campaign Foundation, Washington, DC

We have seen tremendous strides toward LGBTQ equality in the U.S. and yet current data reveal serious challenges faced by LGBTQ youth. According to a 2017 national survey, only 5% of LGBTQ students say all of their teachers are supportive of LGBTQ people, and only 5% always feel safe in their classrooms. For LGBTQ youth of color, these challenges are compounded by racism, race-related stressors. Join this town hall to build cultural competency and learn how you can make a positive difference.
