AN UPDATE FROM OUR DIRECTOR:
We are settling into 2021 with hope and excitement, while also knowing that many of last year's challenges still remain. It is more important than ever that families feel supported, connected and empowered, which is why we are offering multiple classes and workshop series this month:
Ready, Set, Read! accepts participants on a rolling basis- this literacy program is geared toward the whole family and taps into brain development, learning styles, vocabulary, comprehension and more.
Just For Teens kicked off last week, with another session beginning March 1 - this program for pregnant and parenting teenagers focuses on support, not judgement, and builds their confidence and skills both as parents and individuals.
Incredible Years begins January 13 - this evidence-based program, designed for parents of children aged birth - 2, aims to promote emotional and social competence and prevent and reduce aggression and emotional problems in their children.
Triple P begins February 23 - this gentle parenting program covers topics like bedtime routines, hassle-free shopping, managing aggression and more.
We also have monthly family engagement workshops covering topics like crisis & trauma, work/life balance and positive discipline. For a full schedule or to register, click here!
In case you missed it:
EPIC is taking part in the OneNY Safe Virtual Challenge! This is a year-long event by OneNY, where participants can commit to running, walking or biking anywhere from 31 to 2,021 miles throughout the year. This event is not only a great way to get outside safely and with purpose, but each registration can also support a charity or nonprofit of your choice. Team EPIC is off and running (literally and figuratively) so we hope you'll join us!
