Low-income schools, children and entire families are deeply affected by a wide variety of factors brought on by poverty. Poverty creates challenging issues that families are forced to address, especially due to the lack of information and external resources.The impact of poverty on students and their families undermines student achievement, and hinders the emotional and social development of entire families.Thus, educational seminars are highly important as they bring opportunity for self-improvement and empowerment through education for low-income families. Educational seminars aim to respond to the diverse needs of low-income populations by implementing need-focused community programs. A variety of topics covering nutrition, health care, economics, family, civic responsibilities, etc. encourage entire families to analyze and adjust their lifestyles.
The implementation of educational workshops helps families attack specific problems that challenge households and communities. These workshops provide knowledge and skills to parents and guardians to respond effectively to particular issues that negatively impact their social units.Additionally, workshops provide tools and strategies for families to improve communication with their children and deepen their understanding of positive emotional and physical treatment.
Educational seminars are also highly beneficial to children as they learn about a variety of topics that are usually excluded from academic curriculum in public schools. These workshops foster a positive environment for further education that engage children in topics important to daily life, as well as more complex topics such as technology and health. With new knowledge, abilities, and attitudes children develop a positive mindset suitable for a bright future.
