This workshop will shed light on the unique challenges and opportunities faced by today's youth. Based on developmental psychology, topics will include social media, cyber-bullying, communication skills and the effects of trauma in children and young adults. We'll explore the importance of active listening and the role of caring adults in supporting youth. We will end the workshop with a panel of high school students who will offer their perspective and insight on growing up in the 21st century, as well as their experiences in the world of mentoring.
