With support from Telus’ Future Friendly Foundation, the Amal Center is proud to offer three parenting modules designed for mothers, by mothers, titled Sharing Amal. Through interactive learning in intimate group settings, participants will get the chance to have honest conversations about kids, cultures, and communities. Participants hoping to target one particular area can choose an individual module to join, or can benefit from Sharing Amal’s holistic approach by participating in all three of the program’s carefully-designed modules. The modules are complementary; each module supports and reinforces the others, but they can be taken individually as well. Each participant will gain a toolbox that targets not only herself, but her kids and her family unit.
The Amal community will benefit and will be the target of impact-oriented communication plans to share learnings, best practices, collected data, and anecdotes sourced from the project.
Tickets are available at accessible prices for members of the community and for free to Amal clients and beneficiaries referred by local social services and organizations.
Childcare will be available to participants.
