Connected Kids believes that through authentic relationships, people can change, and children can heal.
To demonstrate this belief, Connected Kids is focusing on educators by offering a Trauma-Responsive Fellowship for pre-school and elementary-level teacher teams and their principals. The year-long training program will focus on best practices and make the connection from the theoretical to practical application in over-taxed and challenging classrooms.
