Video: Small Groups in an Urban High School
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!
It is easy to build agendas for meetings that lack the connection. I find that I am constantly now beginning with an activity such as these we are using. I appreciate that as an admin team we are taking time to connect in this way as well.
Randy, a boy at School 2 has been struggling (basically failing most subjects) in school for several years. When I met him his teachers, counselors, parents and administration were frustrated and simply did not know how to support and motivate him academically. He was always forgetting things, not turning in work, failing tests and disorganized. Last year in lunch bunch we worked on self-advocacy. This email is a testament to his advocating for himself…he continuously went to the counselor’s office asking to bring back Gen Text because our work with him supports him academically, socially and emotionally! How awesome is this?????
It is something tangible that I can work on each and every day of the school year, without needing to be within the context of bullying or harassment.
Working with Jill Brown and her colleagues from Generation Text Online has been extremely rewarding for the members of our leadership team. The strategies and lessons endorsed by GTO are relevant, thought provoking, and engaging. The training offers participants an opportunity to connect with colleagues, experience personal growth, and place our organization on a path to success.”
