Collaborative Learning Academy (CLA)

We are funding 11 collaborative partnerships, facilitating their education about the science behind how adversity & trauma impact our brain development and life-long health, and their exploration of techniques & strategies for building resilience.

There are five primary goals:

  1. Key participants develop a “shared knowledge & language” about ACEs/NEAR sciences

  2. Key participants develop an increased understanding of the connection between various social issues (drug use, homelessness, poverty, mental health, etc.)

  3. Key participants have increased knowledge of community resources and resiliency building efforts/activities

  4. Key participants are inspired to explore new ideas/strategies for helping clients affected by ACEs

  5. Key participants indicate they have started challenging their “mental model" (deeply held beliefs, assumptions, thoughts) about people who have experienced ACEs
