Meeting the Challenges Facing Our Youth
Wednesday, September 28, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In this first conversation of Brazelton Touchpoints Center Learning to Listen: Conversations for Change fall series, Geoffrey Canada, Founder of the Harlem Children’s Zone, will share with us what he is learning with children, parents, and teachers about the many ways in which the pandemic continues to disrupt children’s learning, development, and wellbeing, and his call to action – for all of us.
Geoffrey Canada is a leading advocate for children and an innovator in the field of education. Canada grew up in one of the most devastated communities in the United States, the South Bronx, raised by a single mother. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College, and eventually went on to earn a master’s degree at Harvard University. He vowed to help children who grew up in disadvantaged circumstances to succeed through education.
