Parent study time – Fall 2019 pilot project (programming open to all, not just students!)
In partnership with EYES Regina, RPIRG is launching a new parent study time this fall!
EYES (Educating Youth in Engineering & Science) is a science and engineering education program for the youth of Regina and southern Saskatchewan. They offer in-school workshops, winter clubs, and summer camp programs, reaching thousands of southern Saskatchewan youth each year. This fall they are launching a new weekly drop-in program for youth ages 5-12 here on campus. RPIRG has partnered with EYES to promote this programming as a way to offer parents a way to also have some dedicated study time.
The program will run this fall on Wednesdays from September 25-November 27, 5:30-8:30pm in RIC 208, and is open to all parents on campus – whether they are students, faculty, admin, or community members.
This is a pilot project, and as such we are still working out some details. We are currently working to organize simultaneous supervised care for youth under 5, to support parents with multiple children or children under 5 yrs. We will provide updates to this as they are confirmed. If you have any questions about this EYES program, please contact Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org
Parenting workshops – Breastfeeding and Post birth activities (Fall 2019)
RPIRG is pleased to be a funder of this workshop series, entering its third semester. This project is led by Heba, a current student. Heba saw a need for workshops to support students who are navigating parenting while on campus, as she is one herself. Past workshops have included information about breastfeeding, infant and other health care, and managing your studies. They are also a good way to connect with other student parents!
This fall, all of the the workshops will take place in the Women’s Centre on campus (Riddell Centre Room 226), and will have the following dates and themes:
October 18th, 12-3pm – Self Care and Well-being
October 28th, 12:30-3pm – Mental Health
November 18th, 12:30-3pm – Sexual Health Post-birth
November 25th, 12:30-3pm – Infant nutrition/introducing solid foods
For more information, you can contact Heba: email@example.com
