Small Groups are so beneficial

Sofia Velez
High School Student

Attending small groups every week has been such a benefit to my life. In our small group we have an opportunity to release stress and anything we are overwhelmed with by sharing it with everyone. When people are sharing in our group, I am able to relate with what they say and it makes me feel like I’m not the only one with these problems. I am so fortunate that I have an opportunity to have a space where I can receive advice on how to better understand others through communication. I would highly recommend small groups and think it will be very helpful to everyone who takes part in it.

Whether you are a school administrator, teacher, parent, mentor or corporation, we can design a program to suit your needs. Let’s make the connection!

I would 100% recommend it

Being in Gen Text small groups in high-school has many beneficial aspects. I would 100%, recommend it to other students considering the various benefits in people skills.

Tone of meetings has changed

I've implemented the high lows to start my end of season coaches meeting, and I've found it sets the tone for how the meetings go and opens up an authentic dialogue between myself and my coaches.

I found the Adverse Childhood Experience Study most interesting

The information from Dr. Nadine Burke on Adverse Childhood Experience Study was most interesting and valuable for that matter. Understanding the science behind the development or lack thereof, for some students helped to build tolerance and empathy as a pedagogue, which can be easily forgotten as the year progresses and frustration begins to fester with “uncooperative” students.

Builds rapport and relationships from an empathetic perspective

The GTO approach has resulted in students understanding one another more effectively as well as teachers understanding their students and the motivations that drive their behavior to learn and behave most effectively.

Made me think

I found the sessions useful...I did....it really has made me think about how I am interacting with the staff and how I can connect more with each one. It really is powerful stuff. Truly. I find myself using some of these strategies even in person
