The California Endowment:
The California Endowment will convene the second in a series of
its signature Sons and Brothers Student Recovery Days to
galvanize parents, students, teachers, community-based
organizations, civic leaders and volunteers to go door-to-door and
recover chronically absent youth by bringing them back to school
or connecting their family to the appropriate social service
needed to address what could be clinical issues requiring varying
forms of professional assistance.
8:30 a.m., Friday, January 24, 2014
Note to reporters and editors:
The day will be highlighted by a "keep kids in school" program in which
partners will go into the community to the homes of absent students in
an effort to bring them back to school and connect their family to any
needed social services. This program will begin with an 8:30 am press
conference, followed by a 9:00 a.m. volunteer training and dispatch.
Volunteers will go door-to-door in the surrounding community and return
at 12 noon for lunch and debriefing. Reporters will not be allowed to
accompany volunteers to the homes of absent students due to privacy
Interviews with Robert K. Ross, MD and others will be available
onsite. Please contact Ed Sanders in advance to set-up interviews.
