Description

P4P Presents: 2019 Community Conversations Series: “What do we need to be talking about as a community?” This discussion series will be free and open to the public. Our mission with this series is to bring a wide-range of voices to the table to discuss topics important to the Sammamish community and beyond.

Our February presentation "Flipping the Script: Supporting the Development of Resilience and a Growth Mindset in Young People" comes to us from Friends of Youth.

Event synopsis: "All too often our young people are engaged and invested in structures that run counter to the development of resilience and growth mindset. Colleges and employers are at times taken aback by the lack of flexibility and malleability our young folks demonstrate when heading out into the world.

Resilience is the ability to achieve in the face of adversity: the ability to bend, rather than break. A growth mindset, allows us to persevere and embrace our strengths. These attributes are fostered in rather common location such as the larger community and the classroom, as long as the founding perspectives are embraced. They involve community, healthy connections and the development of character and confidence. They help young people to become gracious participants in a complex world."
