Power ColLABorative Training

Join educators in-person to engage in a professional development experience that goes to the heart of what you need right now: rest, joy, wellness, and radical-self-care in community. This is the professional development experience like no other! Collaborate and build with other educators. Walk away with the theory behind creating anti-racist, gender and racial equity-centered classrooms, plus pratical teaching strategies and curriculum to support the voice, power and leadership of every student.
