HOPE in Administration

This two-hour workshop will consist of small group work focused on a combination of the following topics: using HOPE as an antiracist framework to address disparities in your organization; analyzing your policies through a HOPE-informed lens; and crafting HOPE-informed intakes.

Participants will:

  •  Identify at least three ways to make your intake form more HOPE-informed.
  • Review at least one organizational policy through a HOPE-informed lens.
  • Identify at least one disparity in access to the four Building Blocks in your community.

Who should attend: Staff in leadership roles of family resource centers and child abuse prevention councils who attended Spreading HOPE on November 3, 2021 and/or have foundational training Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences. Participants who are not able to attend Spreading Hope on November 3 will be asked to complete an online training prior to the workshop (see details below).

NOTE:  This is an interactive workshop; registration will be limited. Priority will be given to applicants who:

  1. Attend the Spreading Hope live webinar (11/03/2021) or completed the HOPE Learning Course.
  2. Serve in a leadership role in a family resource center, child abuse prevention council, or other family-serving organization in California.
