Student Support Card 2-Day Training:Assessing and Amplifying Resiliency & Connection in Youth

Professional Development Training Opportunity

Assessing & Amplifying Resiliency & Connection

Who should attend?
People interested in: raising student achievement and graduation rates; strengthening families; Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs); reducing violence, drugs and suicide; increasing civility

among our kids; supporting teen parents; reducing bullying behavior; or the overall well-being of kids.

Why should I attend?
Resiliency and School Success are almost guaranteed when a teen has a web of support thick enough to sustain them. This web of protective factors guides young people to learn their culture, listen to their elders, make good decisions and stay healthy. This web can be measured within the complete spectrum of a youth’s developmental ecology. More than fifty years of global research has proven that the tighter the web teenagers have, the more likely they will succeed in school, help others, and avoid risk behaviors.

This training will focus on measuring, building, and sustaining a web for all children and teens, inside and outside of the school, to ensure success now and long into the future. Participants will learn about the power of the full-spectrum, seven-color approach to youth development. They will practice working together to solve problems using their heads, hands, and hearts, while keeping each other safe, focused, respected and involved.

You will learn about:
- The power of Integrative Youth Development, which includes the critical building blocks in young people’s lives
- The Web of Support and the role you play in developing that web
- How to mobilize individuals to ensure a bright future for every child

Topics will include:
- Introduction to and review of the research that supports the 7 Phactors (metrics) of the Student Support Card
- Overview and hands-on experience of the Student Support Card assessment instrument
- Interpreting the Student Support Card assessment results and using it to coach youth to enrich their developmental ecologies
