The Community Coalition for Children…helping children thrive® will offer its annual inter-generational conference on Wednesday, Nov. 1, 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Mitchell College. The theme to be explored in various workshops is “How Social Media & Diversity Affect Our Lives.”
Students from regional middle schools and high schools will come, plus parents, educators, community leaders and home schoolers are welcome. The morning is free and open to the public, but registration is highly encouraged to ensure getting your choices for the two workshop sessions. The opening plenary will feature Writer’s Block, a group of students from New London, who will present scenarios that depict the theme of the day.
Some of the workshop topics are: #Relationshipgoals, Mental Health and the Media, There’s a Bully in My Bedroom, The Good Web: How to Use Social Media in a Positive Way, Turn It Off, Applying Critical Thinking Skills to Social Media, A Word to the Victims, Get Woke Stay Woke, and Inner Armour.

In the spring, the Community Coalition for Children will present the Catalyst Award to an individual or group who has taken what they learned at the conference and initiated action to expand awareness and/or support for the issue they explored at the conference. The award(s) are monetary and may be given to individuals, organizations, and/or schools.
