Empowerment Squared cordially invites you to the official launch of its new School Readiness Program and presentation of the research conducted in partnership with the Social Planning and Research Council of Hamilton which informed the development of the program.

The School Readiness Program helps Hamilton’s racialized and newcomer children and youth navigate through and succeed in Hamilton’s education system. These youth may be dealing with issues of racial discrimination, culture differences, language barriers, pre-and post-migration trauma, inter-generational trauma, mental health difficulties, and other hurdles that make their educational journey more challenging.

The School Readiness Program will begin supporting students in August 2022 at Lake Avenue Elementary School, Viola Desmond Elementary School, and Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board Welcome Centre.

Doors open at 4:30 PM, the event runs from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM (ET).
