Beyond Hair

September 15, 2023 @ 9:30 AM - 2:30 PM

Many families created through foster care and adoption are transracial. As parents and caregivers, we can honor and understand what makes our children who they are – their culture, their family, and their hair and skin. While our children’s hair texture and skincare are only part of what makes them who they are, and we must go beyond appreciating these characteristics, caring for our child’s hair and skin is an important and tangible way to celebrate what makes our child special. Whether you are a seasoned parent who just needs a few tips or are ready for your first step in engaging your child’s cultural history, we welcome your experience and questions. Join us for a day of learning from experts with lived experience in the field of transracial relationships.
This training is held in partnership with Change1. Cortney Jones, along with a seasoned hair stylist will walk caregivers through practical strategies, wisdom, and insight to best care for their children’s needs. Participants will leave this training feeling equipped and confident to start the new school year with their children.
