Customized On-Site Workshops and Training
We can send one of our trainers to your location for a workshop or training that focuses on your organization’s needs. We will help identify what issues you would like our skills training to address before the workshop/training takes place. We will customize in-class exercises to specifically address your group’s issues so topics will resonate with youths’ experiences, thus increasing their involvement.
These workshops are for eight to 20 participants and can be scheduled to fit your calendar.

Anti-Bullying training, which is divided into 8, 60-minute workshops for easy integration into classrooms, schools, residents, and programs. The workshops help students create a safe, inclusive, and accepting school. Our training puts students in the driver’s seat to lead school-wide anti-bullying efforts. We lead methods for teaching all students to move from bystanders to upstanders who speak up for themselves and others. We facilitate tips for supporting students who are bullied, as well as populations often targeted their disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or perceived/realistic sexual identity. We share approaches for helping students who bully learn empathy and change their behavior.
By the end of the first session, participants will understand bullying and know how an exemplary member of the Program conducts himself or herself in and outside of school. Six Pillars of Success Course (4 weeks: twice p/week for one hour): Students progress through multiple units in which they learn the six units and apply their

Students are quizzed once per week and must demonstrate 80% mastery to move from unit to unit. Instructors provide direct instruction and instructional interventions to those experiencing difficulty. Assessment: To assess and monitor growth in the course, students take weekly quizzes and complete a school project at the end of the four weeks.
