The BLC serves as a link between members of the backside community and outside agencies/resources aiming to encourage self-advocacy when possible 

Through participation in numerous community advocacy groups, the Backside Learning Center amplifies the interests and concerns of equine families. The BLC draws attention to the need for inclusive multilingual environments while celebrating a strengths-based perspective around culture and language.

We prioritize bringing educational content in the form of workshops and programs based on the interests of parents.

These initiatives focus on strengthening community, leadership development, and creating space for parents to learn from & support one another.
