The 8th National Peer Program Conference, Feb. 8-9, will include two Extended Family for Kids Workshops. Counselors, mental health professionals and peer program coordinators are registered to attend the conference, which is hosted by the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation.
"We are looking forwarding to connecting with folks from around the country at this conference who can go back to their communities and help children of the incarcerated," said Laure Clemons, Extended Family Executive Director. "It is exciting to see people respond to this solution for their students dealing with family incarceration."
Other workshops at the conference will cover topics related to helping at-risk students. Experts in the fields of suicide prevention, stress related behaviors, sexual assualt, and drug abuse prevention will be presenting.
"It is an honor to be included in the Peer Program Conference for the second year in a row," Clemons said. "We know Extended Family for Kids is meeting a need. We are presenting alongside a distinguished group of experts. I look forward to learning from them as well as sharing the EFK program."
