About this session

Track: Early Childhood Services
Audience level: Foundational

Join us for an interactive session on understanding the barriers our non-English students and caregivers face in a daily basis and what we can do as a community to support them.  When schools and organizations create a space where people can be seen, heard, and valued for their skills and talents, we create community connections that impact the learning, earning, and living of our Nebraska people.  Learn what you can do to include the voices and community impact non-English people can bring to your community.

Intended Audience: Anybody that has interaction with individuals that do not speak English or are not proficient in English.

Learning objectives

  • How we can all impact and help our non-English speaking community members.
  • Making a difference is not as overwhelming as originally thought. Small steps make a huge difference.
  • Community well-being include feeling heard and supported. Those communities thrive and bring economic development and overall growth.
