You are invited to our next 50th Anniversary event, Part 2 of the ‘Nourishing Global Families’ series, offered to staff and spouses by the Family Network and Staff Association. The second webinar titled Education Advocacy For Children and Families Navigating a Global Lifestyle,  will help you understand how best to support your child’s educational needs while navigating a new country.

Transitioning between countries and navigating the education system can be a challenge. Understanding how to best support your child as they transition to a new school or country can empower families to make choices that will facilitate continuity of services and mitigate challenge and struggle.
