Dear 3CSN Wayfinding Community,

As we move forward to the end of the month, we wanted to express our gratitude once more for our strong network of faculty, classified professionals, near peers, and administrators across the state who are working tirelessly to support students and each other this summer all while working a second (or, for our caretaker colleagues, third) shift-- learning, learning, and more learning. We see you.

We have another great week of professional learning lined up for you. In addition to our "tried and true" sessions, we are excited that Maria Granados, Foster and Kinship Care Education, Regional Coordinator and Guardian Scholars Program Director at Los Angeles Mission College, Melissa Bond, Project Manager for John Burton Advocates for Youth, and Princess Smith, C. G. C. A. for CAFYES/NextUp (Guardian Scholars/CAFYES NextUp alumni) will be joining us to share best practices for supporting foster youth in a pandemic .

In addition, we are proud to host our second 3CSN Facilitator Learning Community (FLC) Leadership Spotlight featuring a professional team from San Diego Mesa College-- Looking Back to Look Forward: Reflecting on Your Cultural Frames of Reference .
