(4) Supporting Victims of Bullying Class (April 11; Webinar)

We see the acts of bullying. We know who the victims are. Sadly though, many targets of bullying think that they deserve it or that there is nothing that can be done about it. Why? Because nobody at school shows them how to respond and what to do about it. Left to their own, most kids think all they could do is fight back physically and that doesn't work out well for them typically. Well there are lots of different ways to fight back, and we'll give youa dozen solid techniques that will empower the targets of bullies.

Webinar: Wednesday, April 11, 10:00 am PT/ Noon CT/ 1:00 pm ET

(10) The Bridge From School to Afterschool and Back Conference: Empowering Youth Voices (October 8-9; Seattle, WA)

The Bridge From School to Afterschool and Back is a two-day conference held in the heart of downtown Seattle. Bridge brings together afterschool and youth development (AYD) professionals, school leaders (e.g. superintendents, principals and classroom teachers), funders, researchers, policymakers, trainers/coaches and business leaders from across the country. The Conference focuses on research, cutting-edge resources and strategies relevant to strengthening the services that youth (in grades K-12) receive both in and out of school. In our tenth annual Bridge Conference we focus on: Empower Youth Voices. EMPOWER YOUTH VOICES: With limited time and resources, it is challenging to step back, truly listen to the voices of the youth we serve and give the authentic opportunities to lead. But when education and community leaders come together around the shared goal of youth empowerment, we can shift the culture to uplift youth as leaders. It is critical that we talk with young people about their interests, what they know and how they know it. We look forward to exploring the conditions that truly foster learning and leadership, both in and out of school, in grades K-12. Click here to register now!
