The focus of this seminar is on emphasizing student's strengths in learning, navigating, and approaching education. We will look at risk and protective factors of struggling students and critique current prevention and intervention programs being used in schools and communities. Each week we will have a guest speaker who will bring insight and open discussion to our exploration of working with youth. We will emphasize the important roles that we all serve in the education of our youth, as teachers, leaders, mentors, and tutors.
