We provide a secure platform for school system leaders and educators to learn from experts across the country about trauma-informed approaches for girls of color and engage in peer-to-peer learning.

The Learning Network’s content is guided by a youth advisory committee comprised of girls of color and a steering committee comprised of professionals with expertise in trauma-informed learning and/or issues relating to race, ethnicity, and gender.

Registration is free for members who are educators, school leadership and support personnel, district leadership, school support staff, school counselors and therapists, and other members of school communities.
