Youthscape Podcast with Eli Gardner

We have such a treat for you all! Our very wonderful Kids Matter director Eli Gardner spoke to Youthscape about Kids Matter in a podcast that is insightful, inspiring, entertaining and real –  a GREAT way to kick off 2020.

Eli shares about the Kids Matter model – why we ditched flip charts and lanyards for peer learning around a table with tea and pastries. Her passion for reaching vulnerable children and families is tangible when she talks about ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and the lasting effects of trauma into adulthood. Eli also touches on Kids Matter in prison as well as the burden of poverty on the most vulnerable, and has some great clinical advice for those working with youth in their communities.

And then there’s the story of Hodan, a mum of five who has done Kids Matter four times (twice as a guest and twice as a group helper) and brought an army of mums with her to a group so that they could learn the same skills that have helped her become a more confident parent. This is what Kids Matter is all about!
