The 2020-2021 Parent Empowerment Workshop Season

The 2020-2021 Parent Empowerment Workshop season is in full swing, and we don't want you to miss out on the opportunity to learn, share and grow alongside the members of our Bronx community. 

This year, we have partnered with vendors who will be providing a wide range of Project-Based Learning (PBL) opportunities that will increase parent's knowledge and confidence when it comes to supporting their children who are learning in either the fully remote, or blended learning DOE schedules. We want you to have the tools you need to help your children succeed, and through a project-based learning (PBL) lens, every workshop will be accessible, fun and will come with insane raffle prizes! Want a chance to win a Desktop computer (Tower, keyboard, Mouse and 17" Flat-screen Monitor) that comes with Windows 10 installed?!              

Enjoy these pictures of families who have won Computers so far this year! Register Today and let's get District 7 connected and empowered!

 

District 7 parent, Patricia Rodriguez led workshops on 'Emergency Preparedness' for the South Bronx. In this picture, she and her son receive a computer to help her further her outreach efforts to continue to bring more resources to the families of Community School District 7.

  

District 7 parent, Ms. Hope Bell, led a series of workshops on "How to make money from your ideas". These workshops were, in effect, "Small Business Ownership" classes. There were two parents from cohort 1 who went on to incorporate their ideas into fully functioning corporations, and they are now both vendors of the Department of Education and can continue to strive to meet their goals while serving the families of the South Bronx. 

 

As a part of our ongoing workshops, we are raffling off a computer to one lucky winner in each of our presentations.

  • MASA: RAPID RESPONSE IN ACTION

    Good Afternoon,

     
    I hope everyone is safe and well.
     
    My name is Elida Almaraz, I am the community educator at Masa. In the past couple of months Masa has been operating in "rapid response" mode which means we have shifted focus to assist members in our community with food, health, housing and legal resources. 
     
    We are currently managing 2 food programs:
    1.  Food Pantry- Every week we give out food boxes that are brought to us by GrowNYC- these boxes contain a variety of fruit and veggies, plus rice/pasta and beans. We try to be as fair as possible and distribute to members 3-4 times in a month and by appointment to ensure we are minimizing the amount of people in our office space. 
    2. Tacombi hot meal program- with this program clients get to pick up prepared meals that are supplied by the restaurant Tacombi. This also happens on a weekly basis by appointment.
     
    If any of your members are interested in our Food pantry or hot meal program please let us know. For the pantry list we ask that you forward any referrals by Thursday 10/1 as we will start to officialize a list by the end of this week.
     
    Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. 
     
    Best,
    Elida

    As placements are available, families will be contacted by DOE.

  • National Hispanic Heritage Month

    The NYC EAP invites you to celebrate Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month. 

    This is a great time to honor and give recognition to all the contributions our Latinx/Hispanic Americans offer.  In addition to paying tribute to this community, we also want to take this time to acknowledge the challenges and hardship that many in the Hispanic/Latinx community face.  Please take some time to review the attached EAP takeaway and share with staff.
