Extracurricular activities. AP classes. College applications. From a very early age, students are diligently checking the boxes for a successful future, but do they take time to think about who they want to be when they grow up, instead of just what they want to be? Hear from former Dodgers player Eric Karros and his daughter, Mikah Maly-Karros, on how to shift your family mindset away from one focused singularly on outcomes to more purposeful experiences at the Families Connected Speaker Series, presented by Beach Cities Health District and South Bay Families Connected, in partnership with Hermosa Beach City School District, Manhattan Beach Unified School District and Redondo Beach Unified School District.
