Do you want the youth in your community to be healthier and more engaged, but are unsure where to start? This workshop examines the tension that families, students, and educators often experience over issues such as workload, grades, academic integrity, and engagement, and offers tools for creating healthier climates at school and at home.
Our research shows that far too many students are struggling with their well-being, experience a lack of belonging and engagement with learning, and are overwhelmed by constant pressure in and out of school. Instead of figuring out who they are and what they care about, students (and their families) are often consumed by external pressures such as assessments, test scores, extracurriculars, family obligations, college admissions, and future careers, putting their well-being at risk.
Real, lasting change requires the whole school community — educators, families, and students — to both identify challenges and drive solutions. This workshop will provide you with a deeper understanding of what children and adolescents are experiencing at school and home and you will leave ready to take action with a set of research-based, equity-centered strategies to reduce pressure and stress for the youth in your community.
A recording of the event will be sent to all registrants on Feb. 28th.
