Decolonizing Collective Impact: Increasing Individual, Organizational and Community Health Using the TREC Model
Date & Time
Wednesday, December 7, 2022, 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM
Craig Beswick Dana Brown

The Trauma-Resilient Educational Communities (TREC) model was created by Lifelong Learning Administrative Corporation to increase individual and organizational health in the Learn4Life schools TREC supports. The crux of the programming is a 2-year accreditation model within schools and nonprofits across the country. The deep-rooted, equity-focused professional development is six professional development sessions with all staff. The Foundations of PACEs (Positive & Adverse Childhood Experiences) Science and Trauma-Resilient Practices is followed by the trainings on Self-Care & Compassion Fatigue, Mindfulness & Meditation, Relationships & Restorative Justice Practices, and Equity, Inclusion & Cultural Humility. Students benefit from TREC resiliency curricula.  
To expand its footprint beyond schools, the TREC team created Community Learning Impact Centers (CLIC), which are neighborhood hubs aimed at reducing disparities and increasing access, on the evenings and weekends, through a replication of services and partnerships that are offered in schools, to the larger community. Community engagement, youth leadership, and advocacy will guide the development of the CLIC in each school. In our CLIC centers, TREC exemplifies addressing systemic racism and intentional, equity-focused collective impact by collaborating closely with Tribal Nations and the integration of AB1703 | California Indian Education Act. The decolonization efforts, through AB1703 and Assemblymember James Ramos’ office, reflect the “truth-telling” which Governor Newsom stated following his apology to Native Americans for the genocide in California. Honoring our San Diego County Board of Supervisors' unanimous vote of “racism is a public health crisis” in our county, attendees will learn about PACEs Science, Trauma-Resilient practices, and CLIC centers.
