General Session III: Mitstifer Lecture feat. Dr. Geoffrey Canada

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In his 25-plus years with the Harlem Children’s Zone (HCZ), Geoffrey Canada has become recognized internationally for his pioneering work helping children and families in Harlem and as a passionate advocate for education reform. Geoffrey Canada will discuss the Harlem Children’s Zone Model and the organization’s holistic approach. In order to improve educational options for children, we need a collective impact, and large scale change. Geoff will discuss the importance of aligning with thought partners and stakeholders invested in rebuilding communities and working together to effect change and achieve the best outcomes for children. Among the strategies for success that ultimately help develop the whole child include cultivating a love of learning and community building. All of these efforts “collectively impact” educational opportunities for youth and economic development and stability for communities. A special thank you to Pennsylvania State University and The Brock International Prize in Education Foundation for their sponsorship of this session.
