We are convening our annual meeting of Boston-area community partners on Wednesday, December 4, to discuss “Partnering with Immigrant Students and Families.” We will tap the expertise of Vera Johnson, Director of the Boston Public Schools Newcomer Assessment and Counseling Center, and Suzanne Lee, community activist and former school administrator. We’ll seek to answer:
- How can we best recognize and promote the strengths immigrant students and their families bring to school communities?
- What needs can community partners help address?
- What are the school- and community-based resources that can support these strengths and needs?
As always, the event will provide an opportunity to hear updates from City Connects and to network and share resources with other organizations from across the city. Continental breakfast will be served. The event is free but space is limited. Register here.
