Partnership for After School Education

This experiential workshop will introduce participants to the Healing Centered Engagement framework (Ginwright, 2015) by exploring the C.A.R.M.A. principles of Culture, Agency, Relationships, Meaning, and Aspirations and their connection to our work with young people.
