Connections Corner is a digital and interactive series with First3Years! These members only events will allow for open discussion and deep engagement on special early childhood topics. Events will be hosted via Zoom and will be limited to 30 participants to allow for effective communication and interaction. We are encouraged that these sessions will create communities of learning with candid questions and sharing of real-life experiences.

Protective factors at the individual, relationship, and community levels, such as the preservation of traditional language, practice, and culture has provided the causal mechanisms needed to promote and enhance strong communities. We will explore those that are unique to different cultures and evaluate how these factors have helped to mitigate or eliminate risk in families and communities.
