Working Together to Support Relative and Kinship Families Caring for School-Aged Children

April 25, 2023 from 1:00-2:00 PM ET

NICWA logo

Navigating the educational system can be complicated and frustrating. As social workers, school personnel, and relative caregivers can explain, setting up a child for educational success during difficult times presents challenges as well as opportunities for collaboration and responsive communication that supports the child and family. Panelists will share their experiences working alongside relative and kinship families, including family strengths, barriers families face when navigating education systems, and the active efforts tribal nations and urban Indian organizations are doing to support relative and kinship families in caring for school-aged children. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask panelists questions about their first-hand experience serving Native children and their relative and kinship families. The panelists have experiences assisting relative and kinship families across different systems, such as education and child welfare. This webinar is hosted by the Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network’s partner, the National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA).
