Workshops & Training
Are you interested in creating a culture in your organization that cares of kids and community? These workshops can follow a keynote presentation or simply stand alone. They are truly effective.
TOTAL SCHOOL INITIATIVE: THE FOUR CIRCLE APPROACH
The student, parent, school, and community strength based initiative is designed to bring the key players in the school and community together to focus on building a strength-based environment where
students can thrive. Based upon research from the Gallup Organization and Search Institute, a strength based or “asset approach” have been shown to have a significant impact upon student achievement, test scores, and attendance. They are also a powerful way to reduce high risk behaviors. With this innovative model, all four circles – students, families, staff, and community share a role in this process. Each of these circles will be trained in a strength based approach so all are actively engaged in forming circles of support around our kids.
As a stand alone or follow up to the keynote continue the excitement with more stories and data behind a strength based or asset approach. Participants will interact, see how they can use the data in practical ways, and develop seven point action plan on very real, practical ways to bring this about.
THE STUDENT LEADERSHIP AND SERVICE EVENT
In this dynamic, high energy, and fun training, you will be tapping into the most underutilized resource in the WORLD today - our youth. In this leadership and service training, students will learn leadership from the best selling book “Good to Great,” and identify service projects they can do in school to improve the school or community climate. What’s the good news? Students involved in service are 51% less likely to be engaged in high risk behavior and leadership training leads to thriving behaviors. Train up to 100 students at a time starting at 5th grade (you pick the grade levels)and let’s get our kids changing the school and community!
