Authentic YOUth Engagement – what does it mean for YOU?

Tuesday, December 12, 2017, 10:00am - 2:00pm  

Program Description: 
Authentic YOUth Engagement – what does it mean for YOU?  Ever wonder as a practitioner how to engage young people you are supporting?  Ever drive home after a day or night thinking how great (and hard) connecting with adolescents can be?  Want to spend some time with other practitioners who can relate to similar joys and challenges, and support each other with solutions?    Science is revealing what many of us have known in our mission with young people – adolescence holds another dynamic and incredible time of growth and development in the young brain!  Having the potential to heal from trauma, and rewire key connections!  So what are the keys (opportunities) to unlocking this period of potential?  Come join us, as we explore together some key tools and techniques for supporting our greatest resource – our YOUTH!
