Helping Teens Build Their Village - Professional Workshop

"Getting Relationships Right: Helping Young People Strive to Be Their Best Through Developmental Relationships" with Dr. Kent Pekel, President and CEO, Search Institute

"Educational success and social-emotional development blossom when caring adults and supportive peers are present in young people's lives. Relationships are too important to leave to chance." - Dr. Kent Pekel

During the workshop, participants will:

  • Reflect on the things they currently do—and can start to do— to build strong relationships with young people
  • Review findings from studies at Search Institute and elsewhere that demonstrate the connections between strong relationships and strong youth outcomes
  • Understand how developmental relationships build upon Search Institute’s longstanding research on Developmental Assets
  • Consider and discuss the ways that developmental relationships help young people learn to strive to be their best
  • Analyze the five core components of Search Institute’s Developmental Relationships Framework and identify ways to integrate the concepts into their ongoing work with young people

The Developmental Assets® framework created by Search Institute is the most widely used approach to positive youth development in the United States. Search’s newest research-to-practice initiative focuses on studying and strengthening “developmental relationships” that help young people succeed in school and in life.

Who Should Attend:  Professionals serving youth including program directors, counselors, educators, church youth leaders, school administrators, community leaders, and wellness/healthcare advocates.

Parking at Stanford Research Institute (SRI). Enter at Middlefield Road, across the street from Menlo-Atherton High School.

Keynote Presenter:  Dr. Kent Pekel is an educator and administrator who has worked at the school, district, state, federal, and university levels. He holds a B.A. in East Asian Studies from Yale University, a Master’s in Education from Harvard, and a Doctorate in Education from the University of Minnesota.

Sponsored By: The M-A Parent Education Series is sponsored by the Menlo-Atherton PTA and the Sequoia Healthcare District. Dr. Pekel will address parents on Thursday, May 1, at 7:00 p.m. (M-A PAC), “Who’s in Your Teen’s Village?”
