It’s working! Youth and adults are changing how they see themselves and their communities. Kaleidoscope Connect gives adults a “full-color lens,” providing a better understanding of youth and the daily battles they face: bullying, drugs, alcohol, suicidal thoughts, etc. Register here.
Two seminars being offered - one for those new to Integrative Youth Development and one for those ready to take application to the next level. Each seminar nurtures skills to see beneath the surface and move to the core of what students need to thrive, while helping raise professional satisfaction for teachers and other school staff.
Join Derek Peterson for his workshop to learn how Kaleidoscope Connect’s simple framework will inspire and guide you to support youth and work with them to recognize, appreciate and amplify their unique strengths. You will learn proven practices that will decrease negative behaviors and encourage positive outcomes. You will receive tools and will practice strategies to help youth reach their fullest potential.
