For Schools and Community
Community Impact Programming ensures that adults who work with youth are aware of how children and teens grieve and offers the skills and knowledge to best support them. Programming is provided by professional support staff and can be customized for a variety of audiences including school personnel, medical and social services providers, faith-based practitioners and community organizers.
Tu Nidito offers workshops and trainings for schools and community agencies. The workshops provide an opportunity for those that work closely with the youth in our community to further their understanding of what grieving individuals are experiencing and how to better support them through the grief process. Workshops are available in English and Spanish, either on-site or via video conferencing. Certificates of attendance can be provided if requested.

Tu Nidito is available to provide on-site grief response and support in the event of a death or tragedy in the community. We offer group support, one-on-one support and additional resources immediately following the death. Ongoing follow-up support and response is available to help promote healing during the grief process.
For schools, interested in offering a grief & loss group to their students, Tu Nidito can provide a comprehensive training to school staff in addition to a structured 8 Week Grief Group Curriculum. School staff will be trained on the Tu Nidito model and how to implement best practices when facilitating a grief support group at their school. The curriculum includes discussion topics and activities that focus on identifying and expressing emotions, developing coping strategies while at the same time, decreasing the feeling of isolation and building connections with other students.
