Join the co-creators of KRUSH, Kids Rising Up through Support and Healing, in a special workshop for teachers and others who work with children whose families have been impacted by drug-related incarceration.  

The goals of KRUSH are to provide support for the students through several avenues. KRUSH offers a small group setting where the students can be open with their concerns, worries, and positive thoughts as they relate to their incarcerated loved one. The program provides lessons for students that show how to deal with emotions that come with having a parent incarcerated.  
Workshop participants will learn strategies to assist students with:
  • Addressing emotions like worry, shame, guilt, and embarrassment.  
  • Working on self-esteem, positive decision-making skills, and career opportunities.  
  • Developing self-awareness and skills needed to rise above circumstances and be positive and productive.
Please register by July 26, 2019. Seating is limited to fifty participants. Those completing the workshop will receive a KRUSH resource guide. KRUSH is based on national education standards.
