FREE Parent Vaping Webinar - TODAY

Parents Against Vaping e-cigarettes (PAVe) presents Not Just Vapor: Maine

Thursday, February 25, 5pm Eastern via Zoom

Over 3.6M US youth vape, with cheap disposable devices skyrocketing in popularity. But behind the bright colors and sweet flavors are harmful chemicals and nicotine addiction. Join PAVe for everything Maine parents, and adults who work with youth, need to help kids avoid or quit using dangerous flavored e-cigarettes, including how to recognize the signs and how to speak with your own child. 

Submit your own question for our team as you RSVP. 

This FREE virtual event will be hosted on Zoom. Donations optional to support PAVe's ongoing education work. Please check your spam folder if you don't see call info in your inbox.

Parent University: “Raising Anti-Racist White Kids: A Conversation for All of Us” with Dr. Jennifer Harvey

Greely PTO, with support from Foundation 51, is pleased to present the virtual Parent University workshop, “Raising Anti-Racist White Kids: A Conversation for All of Us” with Dr. Jennifer Harvey on March 10th at 6 pm. Difficult conundrums exist when it comes to raising white children in a society that is racially diverse, but full of racial inequity and injustice. This presentation and dialogue will address the challenges of nurturing anti-racist white identity and identify race- and justice-conscious strategies for doing so. Whether you’ve been a white kid, are helping raise white kids, or have children who are friends with white kids—this conversation is for all of us. Register and find out more at greelypto.org.
