The Developing Healthy Boys pilot training was a great success!
On November 29-30, 2017 nearly 60 early childhood educators and community leaders gathered for the Developing Healthy Boys pilot training. The event was convened by MERGE for Equality in partnership with Holyoke Chicopee Springfield Head Start, Square One, and Preschool Enrichment Team, a program of Valley Opportunity Council. The event was held in downtown Springfield, MA at the La Quinta Inn and Suites, and was generously sponsored by Health New England.
The Healthy Boys Training Report (link below) offers a summary of participant demographics, program highlights, images, participant feedback, and future engagement opportunities. We hope you find this a useful resource in our collective work raising emotionally and socially connected boys, and as inspiration for expanding this pilot to other locations, too.
