Webinar: The Impact of One Caring Adult

Join us in our latest webinar as we learn about the power of validation and the impact one caring adult can play in a young person's life.


Description: This webinar provides a brief overview of validation as an instrument to build connections with youth, and the critical first step toward increasing effectiveness when working with youth. Likewise, spend time hearing from a young person about their lived experience and the power that caring adults can have on fostering resiliency.
