The Student Culture at your school directly impacts test scores, attendance numbers, and the number of discipline referrals. We want to offer Positive Youth Development as the antidote to redefine and reshape your school’s culture. Join us at this highly engaging presentation to learn the 6 stages of Positive Youth Development and ReEnvision Youth Culture!
PYD is a small systemic shift in the way we facilitate students as influencers, i.e. intentionally creating outlets for positive peer pressure.
One of the primary sources of influence in adolescence is their peers. Left alone, a tendency for negative peer pressure consistently seems to arise. However, when we engage students to be intentional with their influence, student leadership, self-confidence, and school morale emerge. Peer2Peer Mentoring has incredible power to positively impact all youth on campus at your school. During this workshop, participants will learn how to implement a research-based, peer mentoring program in their specific settings.
John Williams is a dynamic speaker filled with humor and interaction!
This encourages me to do things for others.
Thanks a lot for coming in to talk to us, it really means a lot to me and i hope to the others. You really opened my eyes to a lot of things just by what you said. Thanks for sharing all that you had to say, it really makes me want to make a difference in my community and even my own life. Thanks a ton.
To be honest, your speech today at Johnstown really got to me. I appreciate that you came to our school. I already had a future planned for me and I've gone through a lot of things, but I chose the path of not turning out like everyone in my family. I chose the better path. That speech put me in my bag, but it also lifted my spirits because if you of all people could do what you did, then my goals can be achieved. Thanks a lot for that.
