Trauma Leadership Corps: Peer-to-Peer Training

About this event

Join SRQ Strong for the launch of our new project with Healthy Teens Coalition of Manatee. Teens and young adult leaders will share their experience from the training program, tell their stories, and demonstrate how peer-to-peer training really works. Come and discuss the value of peer-to-peer training, hear about trauma from the perspective of young people, and consider innovative approaches to trauma healing for youth.
