Anti-Oppressive Framework Support

2.png

The anti-oppressive framework is the method and process by which we understand how systems of oppression such as colonialism, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, classism and ableism can result in individual discriminatory actions and structural/systemic inequalities for particular groups in our society.

 

Dominelli (2002) defines it, "in challenging established truths about identity, anti-oppressive practice seeks to subvert the stability of universalized biological representations of social division to both validate diversity and enhance solidarity based on celebrating difference amongst peoples" (p. 39)

Resilience is the ability to stay focused, curious and optimistic even in the face of challenges. We train professionals who teach, mentor, or advocate for youth how to become resilient teachers. We inspire healing from burnout and restore hope in our ability to fortify this next generation. 

Our Mission is to train ADULTs to be responsive and engaged in a proven practice of relationships centered in communication principles that help children and youth develop the necessary skills to overcome and manage circumstances of life.
