What: Increasing a child’s capacity to succeed in college is one of the most important missions of graduate students in the University of La Verne’s Professional School Counseling Preparation Program.
Students and parents from Yorba Elementary School will be the focal point of that mission at a one-day conference titled, “Building Community Ties From the Inside Out.”
Through interactive workshops, developed and designed by graduate students, elementary school students will be exposed to lessons on character development, social skills, bullying, mindfulness and nutrition, and other developmental premises.
Coordinated by Assistant Professor of Education, Adonay Montes, the conference will also offer programs for parents and community guests upon registration.
The Professional School Counseling Preparation Program is one of the core programs in the College of Education and Organizational Leadership at La Verne. It concentrates on implementing and developing cutting-edge action research, which reflects the university’s mission of community engagement.
When: Saturday, May 12, 2012; 8 – 2 p.m.
Where: Yorba Elementary School, 250 W. La Verne Ave. Pomona, 91767. Upon arrival, guests will be directed to appropriate classrooms.
Details: Guests who wish to register for the workshops may do so on-site the morning of the event.
Over the past two years, the one-day conference was offered for middle school students and parents from Bassett Unified School District. This year’s focus is set upon students from Yorba Elementary School, which is part of Pomona Unified School District, and is identified as one of the professional development schools in the local area.
