BStrong Together Parent Coffees bring local experts to the community for free educational presentations and facilitated conversations on topics of concern to students, parents, educators, caregivers, and other community members involved in the lives of our children and youth. Parent Coffees provide relevant, up-to-date information, as well as tools, techniques, and resources, and the opportunity for conversation that is critical to our shared goal of raising healthy, happy, resilient, and adaptable children prepared to navigate the challenges of today and the future.
