Hear from Students at Green Hill Juvenile Rehabilitation School How They Are Training the Adults they Work With
How are the youth you know getting engaged? What strategies could you offer to encourage them to own their learning and take the next step toward their own development? Greg Williamson, Director of Youth Engagement at Dept. of Children, Youth and Families, will be joining us with a dynamic group of youth from the Green Hill School who are training the adults in their lives on strategies for inclusive decision making and motivation.

Youth Engagement 201: The Power of Hope
Did you know that hope can be measured? Students who have hope can take more control of their own lives and with the right tools, you can increase the hope a student feels in their future. Join Chan Hellman, Ph.D. from Oklahoma University, and author of Hope Rising to learn the research base behind hope science and how you can create meaningful pathways for the youth in your community.
