Belonging Through Community Inclusion: What it means, and how to make it happen
Join MassFamilies (formerly Massachusetts Families Organizing for Change) and Merge Consulting for a free interactive multi-session training designed to help families further develop a vision for a good life through community engagement, and belonging.
This 6-week series consists of 3 “lunch and learn” curriculum days, with the option of a mid-session drop-in to discuss the concept and strategize more individually.
Together, we will explore key concepts, and best practices as we:
1.) Learn HOW to engage, even during times of social distancing.
2.) EXPLORE the history and purpose of inclusion, in the context of belonging.
3.) LEARN HOW TO build connections to sustain a fun life, filled with friendships, and opportunity
