Presentation Description

In 2019, Judi’s House/JAG Institute (JH/JAG) launched the Childhood Bereavement Changemaker initiative to empower bereavement partners to use data to inform decision-making and enhance impact. With philanthropic support provided by the New York Life Foundation and in collaboration with the National Alliance for Children’s Grief, JH/JAG is pleased to expand the Childhood Bereavement Changemaker initiative to additional partner organizations. Through a series of training workshops and custom technical assistance, Changemakers will grow their capacity for data collection and program evaluation. This webinar will explain the process and benefits of the Childhood Bereavement Changemaker initiative, answer questions about becoming a Changemaker, and review the Changemaker request for proposal. Please join us to learn about becoming a part of the JH/JAG Childhood Bereavement Changemaker network. For more information click HERE To Access the power point HERE
