Trauma Informed Practices & Social/Emotional Learning Workshop with Renee Mitchell

February 8, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


AFO centers education and access for youth at the heart of our programming. We are excited to offer opportunities for design professionals, educators, youth organizers and more to receive training on trauma informed practices and social/emotional learning.

AFO believes that all adults working with youth have a responsibility to not create harm, to give youth space to express their true selves, to look to them as experts, and to center them in our teaching and learning. AFO understands that these are skills that require ongoing learning and will help us be more empathetic and effective teachers, mentors and leaders.

Facilitated by Renee Mitchell, an educator, writer, poet and expert on these topics, the workshops are intended to help prepare you and make you more comfortable working with youth from different backgrounds. The workshops will be presented in a series and will build upon each other in an effort to support ongoing learning. You can expect a second workshop in May or June and a third in November.

PLEASE NOTE: All current 2021-2022 Architects in Schools participants and 2022 Hip Hop Architecture Camp volunteers have free access to this workshop. Please do not fill out this form if you are a current AFO volunteer or AiS teacher participant.
