The Maine Afterschool Network welcomes Tim Duffey of Bolster Collaborative for a discussion of how adults can be intentional in the development of youth.
In today's culture of outcome measures, accountability, and standards many youth serving professionals and volunteers feel like the passion for their work (and the reasons they entered the field to begin with) is just a distant memory. In this webinar we will take a broader view of what matters in the lives of our young people by exploring practical research on the conditions and opportunities we can all nourish that help them to thrive. There is strong evidence that all young people, including those having experienced significant adversity, can benefit from our intentional, deliberate, and repeated actions to provide them access to "the things that matter." Join us to explore this hope-filled set of principles and consider simple strategies you can integrate into your practice, starting tomorrow, to help nourish these traits in the young people you serve.
