In this interactive webinar, participants will learn strategies for how to leverage teen-written stories to help students develop the social and emotional learning (SEL) skills necessary for secondary school completion, college enrollment, and success in the workplace.
This session includes a brief introduction to Youth Communication’s unique story-based approach. Our true stories by teens provide a bridge to meaningful discussion around the challenges that youth face and how they can make positive changes in their lives.
Webinar participants will practice activities centered upon teen-written stories and identify the SEL and career readiness skills (such as communication, goal-setting, and problem-solving) demonstrated by the author.
We’ll interview Xavier Alvarez, the teen author of “Even When I Was Homeless, I Stayed in School.” He will talk about how adults provided the support he needed to excel and graduate from high school.
We will also share resources to help participants support youth in college and career readiness.
This webinar is ideal for high school educators, college and career counselors, and other professionals who work with teens in settings such as vocational and technical schools
