Workshops will take place at First 5 San Bernardino on the third Thursday of each month from 9 am to 3 pm. Dates include January 18, February 22, March 22, April 19, May 17, June 21, July 19 and August 16, 2018.

Graduates completing the Academy will complete a sustainability plan and make a presentation to a funders panel at the October 2019 THRIVE conference. Graduates of the Academy are eligible to participate in the IECC.
