Haiti Better Together 2024 Conference Logo (1).png

June 13-15, 2024   Nashville, TN

Now more than ever, those of us working with children, youth and families in Haiti need one another. Together we can strive to find ways to remain committed in a country struggling under a heavy burden of conflict.

 

The Better Together conference will provide a dedicated space and time to convene, share, and learn over two and half days in Nashville. Workshops will be focused on topics related to supporting children in families with special emphasis on the complexity of the current context. In addition to workshops, there will be plenty of time dedicated to connecting and growing relationships.

Workshops

Many programs in Haiti working to help transition youth to adulthood report that children who grew up in orphanages are the ones who struggle most in their programs…Why is that? What are the links between a childhood spent separated from family and the struggle to successfully transition into independence? This workshop will provide insight from organizations that work with this population of youth in order for the audience to gain an understanding of what skills and supports are necessary to have in place during childhood and in family care.
