Creating Resilient Youth: The Power of Web-Building for Youth & Adults
Wednesday, November 18, 2015
9 am to 3 pm.
Who should attend?
Teachers, Instructional Coaches, Counsellors, School Administrators, Students, Teens, College-aged Adults, Youth & Family-serving Organizations, Parents, Grandparents, and other community members who care about our children and youth.
Why should you attend?
Resiliency is almost guaranteed when a teen has a web of support. This web is made of protective factors that guide youth to make good decisions and grow to be healthy and successful. More than fifty years of national research has proven that the tighter the web teenagers have, the more likely they will succeed in school, help others, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
Our workshop will focus on building and sustaining a web for all students, both inside and outside of the classroom. Strong webs of support help our kids to succeed, now and long into the future and help create strong communities.
Students and adults alike will learn about the power of the full-spectrum approach to youth development and its seven colors. They will practice working together to solve problems using their heads, hands, and hearts. The solve these problems while keeping each other safe, focused, respected and involved.
