Supporting School Readiness of Young African American Boys

African American Boys' Journey to School Readiness

Early experiences and high-quality learning environments lay the foundation for healthy development and school readiness. Unfortunately, structural racism and implicit bias have resulted in inequitable learning experiences for young African American boys that negatively affect their development and well-being.

This three-part webinar series highlights six strategies programs and education staff can use to create more responsive learning experiences that support their development and promote their strengths. Hear about the Supporting the School Readiness and Success of Young African American Boys Project and the Head Start approach to meeting the unique needs of these children and their families. Panelists also share lived experiences that have shaped their identities as they reflect on the early learning experiences for African American boys.
