Childcare & Caregiver Support

We offer a limited number of cash stipends for parents and caregivers who need to arrange care back home in order to attend the workshop. If you request a stipend, we do not require documentation of how you use it. Possible uses could include: paying a childcare or eldercare provider while you are at the workshop; paying for food, travel, or lost wages for a family member who is taking on care responsibilities during your absence; other childcare and caregiving uses that will support your attendance. Depending on your circumstances, the stipend may not cover the full associated costs of care, but is meant to make the workshop more accessible. If you request a stipend, we’ll follow up directly with the amount available and next steps.

Scholarship Request

We ask scholarship recipients to pay a minimum deposit of $30 toward food and logistics. If paying $30 is not possible, we can work together to find an amount that works for you. This is an application for scholarship - we'll follow up as soon as possible with next steps. Please answer the following questions as part of your scholarship application. Answers do not need to be long; 2-5 sentences is great.

Covid Protocol
We've set covid and health precautions uniquely for each workshop. Please indicate any needs related to covid precautions, and read the full protocol below.

COVID-19 Safety Protocol

Vaccination: COVID-19 vaccination prior to the workshop is not required.

Masks: Mask-wearing is not mandated during this workshop. We encourage and support voluntary mask-wearing, but it is not required. We encourage everyone wear masks during their travel to the workshop.

Testing: All participants and trainers will be asked to rapid test each day before the training begins. Rapid tests will be provided.

Other Protocol: If someone learns during the workshop that they've had exposure (i.e. family member back home tests positive), we will disclose this to the group. They will be asked to show proof of a negative rapid test each day, before attending this workshop. If a workshop participant tests positive or experiences symptoms during the workshop, they will not be permitted back into the workshop. We will disclose to the group, offer a fee refund and offer reasonable support around travel back home or quarantine. If someone tests positive for covid or experiences symptoms within 14 days after the workshop, we will share this information with all participants so they can determine if they need to get tested or take other measures. If the workshop is canceled for all participants due to COVID-19 exposure or risk, we will offer a refund for participant fees.

If any of this protocol changes, we will let you know as soon as possible.
