Limited Capacity seats available

RedRover recently hosted it's first "teen pilot program", where teens from Ballard High School completed the RedRover Readers online course and learned how to implement the curriculum in elementary school classrooms. The goal of this pilot program was to see if teenagers could successfully help younger students practice the steps necessary for empathy: recognize human and animal emotions, share emotions and regulate emotions in order to connect in positive ways with others.

Attendees will learn how to activate teen's leadership skills by giving them tools and strategies to help teach and mentor younger students' social and emotional learning skills. Please bring a pen and a notepad. Workshop materials will be provided.
