Phase One – Building Capacity (2018 – 2019)

This multi-year initiative will be executed in three discrete phases that stand alone and will also build upon one another.

This approach will follow a less traditional path; in the first phase we ask interested parties to first submit an application to attend two workshops:

One Day Trauma Workshop: on trauma, toxic stress, adverse childhood experiences, trauma-informed care, and early childhood development. (How to define, distinguish, and connect?)
One Day Human-Centered Design Day Workshop: on What is HCD? What makes it different? What are the tools? How might I use it in my agency?

A spectrum of providers who work with children five and under and their families from community-based organizations, early childhood centers, faith communities, and clinics are being invited to participate in learning sessions designed to – provide training and skill development.

These workshops are designed for you to learn about trauma and human-centered design and how to apply them. These workshops will be the foundation of the initiative, and attendance is required for participation in the subsequent phases of the initiative.
