The burning question of how we give youth the tools they need to be successful appears to be unanswered. The qualities that allow a young person to be successful in life and school: communication, belonging, commitment, responsibility, leadership, trust, and sacrifice are the same qualities that ensure the healthy functioning of a team.
We will explore these qualities in an inspiring session to satisfy your passion for empowering youth. You will come away with tools and an experience of the creative processes we teach in YES! and how they can be applied to your own organization and life.
