Workshops geared to train African American Leading Ladies to become advocates for early learning

Studies show that many of California's African American children are entering kindergarten without the basic learning and social skills that are needed to be successful in school and life. For this reason, First 5 Riverside and First 5 San Bernardino teamed up with First 5 California to bring the Leading Ladies for School Readiness program to the Inland Empire to help African American parents and caregivers better prepare their children for success in school and in life. At the workshop, leading ladies will gain a better understanding of school readiness, learn how to become effective school readiness advocates, get tips for educating parents/caregivers, and receive a free Outreach Tool Kit. The workshop is free and open to leading ladies interested in joining this important effort.
